AllMusic Review by

The release of Down to Earth/I Was Made to Love Her documents a transitional phase for Stevie Wonder. Down to Earth (1966) and I Was Made to Love Her (1967) were made at a time when Wonder was looking to move beyond the "Little" Stevie Wonder moniker, and gain more control over his work, something Berry Gordy and Motown were not quite ready for. It's good material, but not as well-known as some of the earlier "Little" Stevie Wonder sides and not as artistically strong as Wonder's work in his early-'70s prime. The two albums were combined for a time on one compact disc, which has since gone out of print.
