Stevie Wonder’s live take here from 1974 of “Higher Ground” shows his band at the top of their game, riding the wave of their chart-topping success.  On the Innervision album version, which has an extra verse than the original radio release, Wonder played all the instruments himself.

We sampled just a couple of the hundreds of covers of “Higher Ground,” including Eric Clapton and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
