Musically, it’s hard to beat the version on “Innervisions,” but this 1973 live version just looks so funky I couldn’t pass it up. Too bad it cuts out early. “He’s Misstra Know-It-All” is classic do-it-all technology Stevie, as he plays pretty much all the parts (with help from synthesizers) on the album version. Of course, Stevie is talented enough to make it work with a room full of live musicians as well.

“Innervisions” earned Stevie his first Album of the Year Grammy award, in 1974. He would win the same award again in 1975 and 1977. Three in four years, and all well-deserved. Not bad at all.
