From its inception to completion, the recording of Reuben James Richards debut album ‘About Time’ took almost twenty years, but it seems that soul fans think the wait worthwhile with the late legendary producer, Jerry Wexler (Atlantic), describing Reuben as possessing one of the greatest voices he had heard in a decade.

“I’m so glad this album has seen the light of day, I’ve been playing this a lot” Craig Charles, BBC Radio2
