    Can someone please explain how the hell Stevie Wonder took home three Album of the Year Grammys in four years back in the 1970s?

    Sure, he is talented but come on?!?

    “Innervision” won in 1974, edging out, among others, the debut disc of Bette Midler (“The Divine Miss M”).

    In 1975, he picked up a bookend for “Fulfillingness First Finale” over Paul McCartney’s stellar “Band on the Run.” (Sir Paul only has one win, as part of the Beatles on “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” 

    And in 1977, Wonder won again for “Songs in the Key of Life” over the sublime “Breezin” by George Benson.

    OK, I’ll give him the first and last but that middle one?!? Please.

    Honey, Stevie Wonder totally deserved his three Album of the Year wins.  Those are some fine, well-crafted albums.

    Well the Grammys aren’t based on your taste obviously. The academy back in the 70s knew he had superior albums compared to others that were in that category.

    How did Frank Sinatra or Paul Simon do it? There’s more than one 3-time winner. I believe it’s called talent.

    Aren’t those Stevie Wonder albums considered some of the best albums of all-time? To be honest, I don’t see any of those other albums being mentioned in today’s age. However, those Stevie Wonder albums are still making must-have lists.
