Stevie Wonder Live is a 1970 live album by American musician Stevie Wonder on the Tamla (Motown) label. The second live collection by the singer-songwriter, it also was released during the crossroads of Wonder's career as he was about to make unprecedented moves to free himself of the Motown machine that had, at the time, not allowed him to showcase his singular talents.
