Steve Winwood ‎– Roll With It (US Promo 12″)

Steve Winwood (Spencer Blues Band, Blind Faith, Traffic) had a bit of a career resurgence in the mid to late 80’s thanks to the release of the album “Back In The High Life” and the massive success of the single, “Higher Love.” This was from the follow up album of the same name and was marketed as Winwood. He was still into technology using it with traditional Blues structures to create an original sound (i.e. boogie woogie piano and plenty of Hammond organ swirling around) This was remixed by Heller and Forest over the original production by Tom Lord-Alge with added keyboards by Pete Schwartz. So a very, very long main mix; a very playable, “Steve Testifies Dub” version, almost like an alternative version but still keeping those Gospel/Soul elements in. Finally, a proper dub instrumental. He was probably keeping an eye on Robert Palmer’s career at the time and said to himself, “I’ll have a bit of that!”
