Musical magic: Burt Bacharach and Stevie Wonder

This YouTube video clip features Stevie Wonder showcasing his genius on the harmonica playing the classic Burt Bacharach/Hal David song "Alfie." It is from a 1970s TV show "Shindig". Burt is present and appears totally spellbound by Stevie's performance of his song. For fans of these two legends, this clip is a must watch.
