Comments:  Easily one of the greatest of all time, in all categories including Rhodes Player."Too High" is a classic portrait of Stevies sound and a great example of how to use the vibrato on a mid high tempo tune that swings!Oh and you cant forget about his funky clavinett playing(Higher Ground), and that MOOG.INNOVATIVE!!!

Comments:  the previous review is referring to this album's follow-up, "innervisions". however, all the music on "music of my mind," "talking book," and "innervisions" was recorded more or less at the same time; stevie kept recording songs, and when they had a set that made sense, they'd put it out. "talking book" is easily in the class of the rest-- especially the smooth ballad "you've got it bad, girl" and "tuesday heartbreak".

Comments:  I love Talking Book. Stevie puts so much emotion into this record with his Rhodes-work and his synth sounds are incredible. I don't know if the Rhodes could sound much better than it does on this album.
