Uptight was the great dance track that everyone loved at the Twisted Wheel Club in Manchester. It became one of those eternal allnighter soul anthems. Of course all the Mods in the early sixties loved Little Stevie Wonder and the fabulous Fingertips.
He came up to Manchester and recorded songs for Granada TV and he appeared at the Belle Vue Elizabethan Ballroom – Jimmy Savile’s Top Ten Club.
Jimmy would play records, then when the live acts came on. The stage would spin around and on this Jimy Savile was replaced by Stevie Wonder. wearing a tight fitting tonic mohair suite, dark glasses, and clutching his harmonica in a style that was unique to him. He got very excited doing “Uptight” and almost walked off the front of the Stage! However, he was unscathed as several people with outstretched hands guided and pushed him back. It was a fantastic show.
Stevie recorded the original “Angel Baby” on an LP which was recorded by J J Barnes, Darrell Banks, and George Carrow.
