Steve Winwood Vintage

Steve Winwood Vintage Courtesy Of The Artist
Newly Unearthed Full-hour Session With Steve Winwood From 2003. You’re Welcome.

Steve Winwood is a real musician who got side-tracked in the 80’s into being a pop-star with a number of very smooth synth-laden hit albums. They were good, but it seems that Winwood is most comfortable behind his Hammond B-3 console jamming with his fellow musicians. Today’s Vintage Cafe goes back over a decade to 2003 for a performance recorded around the release of his return to rock, the album About Time. It’s a session recorded at our affiliate WFPK in Louisville, KY with the three-piece band that recorded Another Time. It’s a full hour. The set-list is spectacular: both of his Spencer Davis hits, some Traffic, a cover of Timmy Thomas’ “Why Can’t We Live Together,” as well as a couple from About Time. It is only available on line for a short time so give this a listen.
