WOW!

Saw him for a private show near the same time. GREAT Show. Top 3 ever+!
Winwood is wildly underrated in the lead guitar realm. I saw him live, solo, about 10 years ago and was about to hit up a Steely Dan/Winwood double bill thingy in 2020, but obviously that didn't happen.

Highly recommended if you like Traffic (criminally underrated as well), and anything remotely in his solo catalog, which for 60s legends doing 80s poppy albums, his are probably the least offensive from that age and group and genre. He's got some nice little nuggets tucked away on the solo albums if you go and look, IMO.

Here are a couple of my favorites, one from many years ago at Woodstock and a more recent one where he still sounds great. I stumbled across the latter about 5 years ago while doing a deeper dive into the Traffic catalog. This is how you play lead guitar right here. All feel:

Saw Tedeschi-Trucks this weekend, superb live band.
Caught them in Sept at an outdoor/vaxx safe show. She's great, Derek a bit overrated. Great band, though. The keys player and the horns are great. Better band than they are songwriters, IMO. Good stuff, though.

A few comments about this one:
  • It's really well-recorded, in my opinion. Worth listening to on headphones.
  • Keyboards? We don't need any stinkin' keyboards. Drums? We don't need any stinkin' drums.
  • Towards the end, Prine breaks a string on his guitar. But at that point, it didn't matter - the song and its performers could easily overcome that.
Huge fan here. Was so depressed when he died at the start of 2020. Was set to see him again in April of 2020 and that was it. Love Bruised Orange from '78. That's the highlight for me for him.
