I’ve been something of a Steve Winwood freak for many years.
Probably has something to do with his use of the Prophet-V synthesizer from my dinosaur days.
(I had one as well. Go HERE to YouTube. The instrument doing that neat solo line is a Pro-V)
Winwood has maintained something of a clean career far away from the major spotlight and sounds as good
today as he did years ago with Traffic, Spencer Davis Group and Blind Faith.
His newest album called “Nine Lives” is simply amazing.
Maybe it’s because the man has taken care of himself.
Winwood plays Hammond B-3 and guitar (with some help from E. Clapton)
I am just so damn impressed by this man that still keeps on creating after all these years.
Had to let you guys know about this incredible album.
Please check it out and check out the video above
‘Dirty City’ is a gritty and intensely memorable song to listen to.
That’s all I got for today but if I can turn one person onto this incredible musician,
the post will have done its job.
ps. I would have posted the actual video but embedding was disabled. :0(

I actually like this better and it’s only 4 minutes versus 8
