This volume of 20th Century Masters: The Millennium Collection may have been released under Steve Winwood's name, but that's slightly misleading. True, he does sing lead on all these songs, but there are no solo recordings here -- just Spencer Davis Group, Traffic, and Blind Faith numbers. In that sense, it's actually a welcome compilation, since it's the first of its kind. True, this isn't definitive, but it has all the major songs here -- "Gimme Some Lovin'," "I'm a Man," "Paper Sun," "Dear Mr. Fantasy," "Pearly Queen," "Can't Find My Way Home," "John Barleycorn," "Low Spark of High Heeled Boys" -- that will make it a good choice for casual fans looking to supplement a solo recordings collection.

20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Steve Winwood based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Often the most overlooked cut on the CD. Winwood's voice has matured over the years, but this cut shows what the master brought to the table. Soft, melodic and yet strikingly strong lyrics and notes that haunt you years later.
