Classic Material: Stevie Wonder shuts down Sesame St

Stevie Wonder – Superstition live on Sesame Street

I’m getting to really love this Classic Material series mainly because I can get to seek out rare footage from yesteryear and then pass it on to yours truly. In the past I’ve posted exceptional clips from Nina Simone and Chaka Khan under the Classic Material header and as always this clip of Stevie’s performance on Sesame Street is no exception. Stevie lets it all hang out and gives us an extended version of Superstition where at the end he shouts out “Sesame Street”. During his set he must have been thinking “before me there were some but after my performance there will be no other“. It’s really too bad that television shows directed at children these days do not incorporate legendary performances such as this one. Can I get a Amen – chuuurch!
