iTunes Review

Once known as the teenage wünderkind who led the Spencer Davis Group through “Gimme Some Lovin’,” Steve Winwood went on to even greater fame with the jazz-soul-R&B-progressive leanings of Traffic (“Dear Mr. Fantasy,” “The Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys”). His participation in the “supergroup” Blind Faith, with Eric Clapton, and his solo career (where in the ‘80s he reinvented his blue-eyed soul to correspond with the keyboard-heavy and slick, grandiose productions of the decade) made him a performer who stood out in each era. This 17-song sampler of his 58-track career-anthology boxed set stands as a concise look into a career that has been packed with some incredible tunes and many diverse styles. “Forty Thousand Headmen” is a flute-fired piece of hard rock. “Can’t Find My Way Home” aches with the search for the soul at the end of the ‘60s. “While You See a Chance,” “Higher Love,” “Back In the High Life Again,” ‘Roll With It” and “Don’t You Know What the Night Can Do?” define an era of soulful pop that had Winwood as its major statesman.

The (Not-So) Finer Things

This is a mediocre attempt at a Greatest Hits collection for Steve Winwood. What makes it awful is Universal's decision to re-imagine (as Hollywood likes to say these days) a number of his solo tracks. "Valerie" is a completely different version than the single that made it a smash hit in 1987. The studio also decided to add an annoying echo effect to "The Finer Things" which makes it sound as if Steve is trapped inside a peanut butter jar. And to add insult to injury, most every song is edited down. While you see a chance, skip this one.

Excellent all-in-one collection!

Even though there may be other compilations out there, this new one gives me all the best Steve Winwood has to offer in one place, including work with his other bands. Of course you gotta love his '80s solo material, but it's the earlier work with Traffic, Spencer Davis Group, and Blind Faith that puts the icing on this cake. Great stuff!!

Finally! A career overview!

I am a huge Winwood fan and have been waiting a long time for him to finally put out an entire career retrospective. He's one of the few artists - like Clapton, who he plays with - that has had hits in various bands over many decades. As cool as the single disc is, I am more excited to hear the box set, especially all that great Traffic music. Awesome!

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

As a solo artist, Steve Winwood is primarily associated with the highly polished blue-eyed soul-pop that made him a star in the '80s. Yet his turn as a slick, upscale mainstay of adult contemporary radio was simply the latest phase of a long and varied career, one that's seen the former teenage R&B shouter move through jazz, psychedelia, blues-rock, and progressive rock. Possessed of a powerful, utterly distinctive voice, Winwood was also an excellent keyboardist who remained an in-demand session...
