Fifty years ago, Stevie Wonder released his first Motown album under his total creative control. "Music of My Mind" became the first of a quartet of groundbreaking albums that raised the bar on technical progressiveness and creative ambition. In TEC Tracks' "Birth of a Record" session from The 2022 NAMM Show, recording engineer/mixer and co-producer Robert Margouleff recounted the origin story of "Music of My Mind" and discussed the unique environment, ideas and circumstances that lead to this watershed period of studio mastery. Musical polymath Ted Cohen hosted this interview.
