Innervisions (on Tamla) was recorded at The Record Plant, a famous and iconic recording studio in New York. My next survey question will be something about famous recording studios. The first album recorded at the Record Plant was Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Ladyland. Tons of awesome albums were recroded there, like Hotel California, Rumors, and Songs in the Key of Life. On this record, like most of his others from this period - the mid-seventies, Stevie played most of the instruments. Innervisions won a Grammy as 1974 Album of the Year, and the single "Living for the City," a Grammy for Best R&B Song. VH1 places it as number 31 on their list of greatest albums of all time. And Rolling Stone rated the album #23 on their list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
