This was one of the first songs Wonder worked on with the engineers Malcolm Cecil and Robert Margouleff, who invented the TONTO synthesizer and recorded an album with the instrument in 1971 called Tonto’s Expanding Head Band. Wonder, who had recently negotiated a new deal with Motown that gave him his own production and publishing companies, tracked down Cecil and Margouleff, and enlisted them to build a TONTO and assist with his recordings. The partnership was extremely productive, with the pair acting as engineers and associate producers on Wonder’s albums Music Of My Mind, Talking Book, Innervisions and Fulfillingness’ First Finale.
