Format: Audio CD
This 4CD, 63 song set provides extremely thorough coverage of Steve Winwood's career from the early 1960s up to his last Island Records album in 1986, including numerous tracks from his work in such memorable bands as the Spencer Davis Group, Traffic and Blind Faith, as well as his later solo recordings. Significant chunks are included from virtually all his Island albums, together with a small taster from his first two Virgin Records albums. (It's a shame that the beautiful ballad 'My love's leaving' wasn't included though.)
This is such a comprehensive account of Winwood's work that it is likely to be of interest only to dedicated fans, but for these it will be a real treat. As well as the superb music there is a beautifully illustrated book with a detailed account of Steve's career and full musician credits for each track. Highly recommended.

Sorry to be adding a corroborative review, so many years after the original. I recently acquired a copy of this SUPERB career overview, after going down the secondhand route. And boy, oh boy, this is worth every penny.

I may not be a huge fan of every aspect of Steve Winwood's soulful rock career phase, but its inherent pleasantness hardly detracts from the overall quality. This box set simply has so much going for it. Unmitigated brilliance, nicely balanced and extremely comprehensive. (Up to the time of its release.) There are some really choice Spencer Davis Group selections, to get things off to a thrilling start. Then an excellent coverage of the psych/pop and folky/jazzy/proggy Traffic periods, separated by the brief Blind Faith interlude. The solo Steve Winwood period covers just over a full compact disc, which i found about right.

Interestingly, there are some very worthwhile oddities with this box set. Check out the two excellent Eric Clapton and the Powerhouse cuts, from a sixties Elektra sampler, which cannot be very easy to obtain in cd form. There are a couple of live Blind Faith tracks, along with an electric version of their "Can't Find My Way Home". Also included is one selection from the obscure Winwood/Kebaka/Amao 1973 collaboration. A couple of Stomu Yamashta's Go tracks feature, as does "Your Silence Is Your Song" from what appears to be a similarly obscure film soundtrack.

Just a fabulous box set, quite frankly, and hard to see how it could be made any better. I hesitated a long while before taking the plunge, owing to cost considerations, and the fact i already had most of the Traffic selections. However, i am so extremely glad that i finally acquired such a vintage edition of this particularly great artist's career highlights.

This is an excellent purchase as it has so many tracks on it. I already had some of the music on this album but because of the price it was a better option to buy this that buy the music from other albums.

The greatest R&B voice in Britain, yet an artist of great interpretative skill, able to translate into music for a whole generation, the realities of feeling the soul of our times.

You need to go no further!
