Released between Solid Air and Sundays Child, Inside Out sees John incorporating a jazz influence into his sound. Danny Thompson plays sublime bass and Remi Kabaka plays African drums. Other artists credited on the album are Steve Winwood, Chris Stuart, Chris Wood, Kesh Sathie, Bobby Keyes, Diga, Rhett, Brian Cooke and John Wilde but no detail is given about who plays what. John's voice is at its best, full of feeling and emotion.
This remaster includes extra live tracks and a couple from BBC Radio 1 "Sounds of the Seventies". Whilst not as accessable as Solid Air, this album is a slow burner that will grow and grow on you. It is now my favourite JM release.
