I accomplished all today’s goals; both fitness (well, what constitutes itself as “fitness” these days) and domestic. Oh, and I even showered. Yay me! So that just leaves dinner left to prepare and down the last dregs of my growlerful of Redline Brewery ‘Oh, Sorry‘. And, seeing as how Kelly’s not home yet, that also means another record turned up louder than usual (ie. louder than Kelly allows), in this case the ‘Winwood‘ album by Steve Winwood.
‘Winwood’ is the first compilation album of Winwood’s.
Yeah, yeah, I know…”Compilation” is just a fancier way of saying “Greatest Hits”.
Well, suck it up. It was given to me for free and Steve Winwood is awesome so, nuff said…
Hate if you have to.
United Artists Records issued this album after Winwood’s band Traffic left the label when their own home label Island Records set up their own American operation. Issued without Winwood’s authorization as catalogue number UAS-9950, it was taken off the market after legal action by Winwood and Island Records. It was later reissued with minor changes as catalogue number UAS-9964 (my copy) and is now currently out of print. So, that makes it kinda rare.
Again, hate if you have to.
Lots of great tunes here including a few that I do not have on other preexisting albums in my collection like ‘Cross Roads‘ (Powerhouse) and ‘Gimme Some Lovin‘ and ‘I’m a Man‘ (Spencer Davis Group). Great music to chop, boil, stir, drink and what have you.
P.S.> I would also be remiss to add that I also wasted nearly two hours this afternoon in-between being a Domestic Hero by watching what might be the worst move to have ever graced the big screen: ‘Armageddon’.
