Here Come The Seventies,
This review is from: John Barleycorn Must Die (Audio CD)
Well Steve Winwood reaches the 1970s.
There's some jazzy bits.
There's some folky tracks as well and, while there's no denying the talents of those involved, this has not aged all that well.
Maybe you had to have been around at the time to fully appreciate it. Steve Winwood's voice is always great to listen to but some of the sax playing tends to cloy.
I think the whole jazz rock sound on it is curiously old fashioned.
It's not bad really, I just found it hard to love in a lot of ways.
