“This was the time when I was discovering drugs, and to me, this is a very druggy record – not that it was Stevie’s intention, but that’s just where it landed in my life. I’m lucky enough to have gotten past that – so many people that I know didn’t – but it’s certainly something that I and a lot of people went through in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. That’s what this album feels like to me.
“Stevie had a run that was just insane. Songs In The Key Of Life, Fulfillingnes’ First Finale, Talking Book – it’s really amazing what he put out. And this one, of course, is one of his best. And on a lot of that stuff, he played all the instruments. That's staggering to me.”
