Revolutions is the definitive career retrospective of one of the all-time greats of the UK music scene, with tracklistings personally selected by Steve Winwood from his five decade career. A child prodigy, Winwood first performed live on stage at the tender age of 8 in his father’s trad jazz band, and joined the Spencer Davis Group at 14. He left Spencer Davis to form Traffic, then later teamed up with Eric Clapton in Blind Faith at the tail-end of the 60s. Arguably his biggest successes came with his solo work from the 70s onwards. In a career lasting nearly 50 years several of his songs have become standards, notably "Gimme Some Lovin" (memorably covered in The Blues Brothers film),"‘Keep On Running", "Valerie", "The Low Spark Of The High Heeled Boys" and "Higher Love".

My favourite period of Steve Winwood's career was his time with the Spencer Davis Group. This is represented by four tracks: Keep On Running,Somebody Help Me,Gimme Some Lovin' and I'm A Man. The digital remastering has these tracks sounding better than ever and breathes new life into these classic songs.
The collection on this cd then rolls on through the Traffic, Blind Faith and solo periods. This is a collection to enjoy. Highly recommended to all Steve Winwood fans and devotees of great music.
Ok let's move on because doubts and complaints disappear from view as soon as you listen to THAT VOICE. It starts on "Keep on Running", the sound of the 15-year-old boy wonder of British 60s Rhythm and blues fronting the mighty Spencer Davis Group, the man who later played organ on Joe Cocker's album "With a Little Help from My Friends", recorded with Hendrix the earth shaking "Voodoo Chile", was a session musician on Lou Reed's best album "Berlin" and someone who just happened to play with those consummate cosmic "jammers" The Grateful Dead and Delta bluesman Howlin Wolf amongst a galaxy of others.
Steve Winwood has earned respect and for those who want to delve even deeper there is the simultaneous release of the gargantuan 4 disc "Deluxe Edition" of "Revolutions" where you can begin to explore the wonders of Spencer Davis (led by one of our great Welsh legends from Bonymaen), Traffic, Blind Faith and his later more pop orientated solo career. This short but punchy "best of" is one of those that are nice to just put on the CD player or in the car to listen to these wonderful tracks steeped in history without swapping between all the albums. It covers a career which spans five decades from a man who invented white "blue eyed soul" and much more besides. Listen to the visceral power of "I'm a man" with Spencer Davis firing on all cylinders and the swirling Hammond keyboards and Winwood's voice packing a punch as big as Mike Tyson.Read more ›
In the first phase of his career with Spencer Davis you get probably the best known four titles from that period between '65 -67 and what great recordings those were with immediate impact that gained the band a really strong following in the first British Beat invasion but gained Winwood himself not just a huge fan base and recognition from the beginning of his career but also the well deserved respect of his peer group as a musician's musician.
That he accomplished all of this long before reaching his 20th Birthday is nothing short of remarkable.These songs make it clear just how and why. Consider also that he shared the writer contribution on Gimme Some Lovin' and I'm A Man while playing/singing that well and it makes you understand what all the fuss was about.
Traffic was another brilliant evolution altogether and allowed Steve the perfect freedom and space to create more fluidly his own music and compositions within probably the most alchemical and effective creative partnership (and deep personal friendship) of Jim Capaldi and Chris Wood.Read more ›
