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…
