Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
Dig Syreeta Wright's version of "She's Leaving Home." The lyrics really have a different emotional kick with a female vocal. Syreeta is Stevie Wonder's ex-wife; he produced the track.
Another issue is that the talk-box backing vocals swallow up some key lyrics. Overall this is very much in the style of "Music Of My Mind," (indeed, it came out the same year, which I could tell without looking it up), but rather than being appropriate to the song, the production and instrumentation sound like Stevie was just playing around with some of his favorite toys.
