Steve Winwood Back in the Highlife Again!


I was in the used bookstore yesterday and heard this groovy sounding Steve Winwood music playing in the background.

As I pondered the book titles I searched my memory and, no matter how hard I tried, couldn’t locate the record I was listening to. It sounded very 70s and I thought I knew just about every Blind Faith, Traffic and Steve Winwood tune there is.

So on exiting the store I asked the man at the counter… “What is this lp?”

“Steve Winwood,” he replied.

“I know that…” I said. “But what album?”

“Nine Lives,” he said. “It just came out Tuesday.”

Well, I haven’t heard all of it yet but from my initial sampling it seems that Mr. Winwood has rediscovered his muse, big time.

This isn’t a flashy sound. And it probably won’t make the bubblegum (or should I say razor blade) charts. But Winwood fans should be happy.

It’s really a statement…

  1. Wow, this has been out for almost a month and I had no idea. I’ve always been a big Winwood fan (more of his group work than solo stuff, but it’s all good). I listened to some clips from the new album and I’m liking it. Thanks for posting this!
