As a young teenager I was exploring the delights of disco, soul and jazz funk while still desperately clinging on to my reggae credentials. Places And Spaces was/is an album that opened up a whole new world of aural delights. When I played this record for the first time on dad’s record player it definitely flipped my lid to say the least! The production was so lush. Sweeping string arrangements, sultry rhythm guitar, warm bass and punchy horn charts combined to make this what I can only call cinematic, hovering between the neo funk of his 1973 album Street Lady and the proto-disco soul of Earth Wind And Fire.
