Taking more than two years from conception to release, Stevie Wonder's classic 1976 double-album "Songs in the Key of Life" is now generally accepted as his finest creative hour in an enduring 35-year recording career that has been filled with many other highlights. The remarkable story behind Wonder's "Songs in the Key of Life" project is told here. Stevie himself reminisces about the inspiration behind the album and there are also contributions from Berry Gordy, the founder and father figure of Motown Records, Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock and lyricist Gary Byrd among many others. In addition, there is a unique reunion of the musicians who played on the original album sessions. "'Songs in the Key of Life' was a title that I came up with from a dream that I'd had," says Wonder. "It represents that uniqueness of the time."
