When this interview was recorded, the singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Steve Winwood was three albums deep into his solo career. Talking Back to the Night had been recently released on which Winwood played every instrument, a method he had started on his successful Arc of a Diver. While Lisa Robinson and Winwood discuss these more current albums here, the focus is mostly on his past, resulting in a few great sound bites about his time with Traffic and Blind Faith.
