stevie wonder Tribute to Uncle Ray
Tribute to Uncle Ray is the second album released by Stevie Wonder during his Little Stevie Wonder phase in 1962. The album was an attempt by Berry Gordy and Motown to introduce Stevie as a scion and legatee of Ray Charles simply by virtue of his colour and handicap. The album was traditionally followed by other tribute albums to Nat "King" Cole and Sam Cooke by Marvin Gaye and The Supremes respectively. Like his debut, this album failed to generate hit singles as Motown struggled to find a sound to fit Wonder, who was only 12 when this album was released.
