Revolutions is a portrait of one of the most influential British musicians in rock history, a singer-songwriter, peerless vocalist, guitarist and keyboard player. 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. His stunning vocal style was compared to "Ray Charles on helium". He left Spencer Davis to form Traffic then later teamed up with Eric Clapton in Blind Faith at the tail-end of the Sixties. Arguably his biggest successes came with his solo work from the Seventies on. In a career lasting nearly 50 years he has sold over 50 million albums and 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'. He has been awarded multiple Grammy awards - for 'Gimme Some Lovin' and 'Higher Love' (a US no 1 in '86) In 2008 Rolling Stone ranked him no 33 in the 100 Best Singers Of All Time. Throughout his career, Steve Winwood has remained an in-demand session player, and has contributed to landmark albums by a huge array of artists including Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Joe Cocker, Lou Reed, George Harrison, Toots & The Maytals, Marianne Faithfull, John Martyn, David Gilmour, Tina Turner, Billy Joel, James Brown, Etta James, Talk Talk, Paul Weller, and Christina Aguilera among many others. With a tracklisting personally selected by Steve Winwood from his five decade career, "Revolutions: The Very Best Of Steve Winwood" is the ultimate Steve Winwood collection.
