Steve Winwood To Release His First Solo Live Album

Steve Winwood has gone to his large archive of live shows to select some of his best performances for the new album Winwood: Greatest Hits Live.

 

The 23-track double-CD/4-LP release will be out on September 1 via Wincraft Records and includes songs for throughout Winwood’s career with the Spencer David Group, Traffic, Blind Faith and his solo years. Each is given a contemporary interpretation channeling R&B, Jazz, Funk, Folk, Classic Rock, Pop, and Afro-Caribbean & Brazilian rhythms with Steve on both his Hammond B3 Organ and guitar.

Steve said “I’m excited about the release because I have recorded every show for many years and so it evoked many memories of the performances and reactions from the fans over the years who have supported me.I suppose it is sort of a tribute to the band members and crew I’ve been fortunate to have with me on the road. The songs were chosen for being the ones most recognized throughout my career which have left an impression and so I hope the record will be a souvenir that brings to mind happy memories of a good time experienced at one of my shows.”
