The typography is dreadful though. A wonderful album with truly dire artwork. Oh, and the Hard-Fi cover was a nod to the placeholder graphics used on music players and music sales websites when they have no actual picture to put in place. An idea that undoubtedly sounded better when talked about than when put into practice. His live shows are heavily geared towards the Traffic and Blind Faith tracks which is a shame as he has some great solo stuff.
What the world really needs is a Traffic box set. Alas last I read Winwood was still in dispute with whoever owns Island Records over royalty rates. I read that Steve has loads of Traffic out takes but reissues to date were a long time ago and not really that satisfying. And I suppose a live best of kind of hints that same issues over contract may still apply. Who knows, only speculation from me. Hopeful that more Winwood archival releases will follow eventually.
I would love to see a multi-disc box by Traffic — if Winwood is given the freedom to select the tracks himself. Any chance you know the year and venue of the tracks? Another terrible cover is he playing behind a jet taking off!! Seriously are there no talented graphic artists left? Or does it just not matter anymore? Hipgnosis where are you when we need you? Buckingham Mcvie just lost top spot. That was pretty terrible as well! Mind you, the album was pretty terrible as well, as I recall.
