Tribute to Uncle Ray is the second Stevie Wonder album to be released. Issued by Motown in January 1963 shortly after The Jazz Soul of Little Stevie, it had been recorded first, when Wonder was 11 years old. The album was an attempt by Berry Gordy and Motown to associate the young "Little Stevie Wonder" with the successful and popular Ray Charles who was also a blind African American musician. Like his debut, this album failed to generate hit singles as Motown struggled to find a sound to fit Wonder, who was 12 when this album was released.
All songs composed by Ray Charles, except where indicated.
