The move from Motor City to California gets a bad rep but this neat digest contains one masterpiece, a couple of classics and some interesting obscurities.

Syreeta's 1972 version of "I Love Every Little Thing About You" is the must-have, with burbling clavinet, floaty drumming, vocal grunts and everything else by composer/producer/ husband Stevie Wonder. It's one of the most joyful sounds by anyone, ever. Elsewhere, there is more than enough here to intrigue.
