  1. Love that tune. Steve Winwood’s early work remains his best. The combination of his vocals and Hammond is just magic! I have tickets to see him with Steely Dan in early July 2021. Keeping fingers crossed by then it will be responsible to return to live shows. I’m so ready!

    • I have wondered how you are doing without concerts- if things ever open up again- I expect everyone to be out and about! It could be a great time for concerts.

    • I feel really starved about not going to concerts. But I also like to stay healthy, not to mention avoid infecting my family or other folks. While some music events have been going on in my area I would have visited under different circumtsances, I just don’t feel comfortable being in crowded situations, even if they require masks.

      I imagine there are many other live music fans who view things in a similiar way. So, yes, I also could see concerts enjoying a strong comeback when things return to a more normal state. In the meantime, one has to hope that artists and the venues hosting them can keep their heads above the water!

    • I just read in Rolling Stone an article on Springsteen he feels as far as concerts go- 2022 at the earliest and he said that may be being too hopeful.
