Steve Winwood ‎– Freedom Overspill (US 12″)

More Steve Winwood from 1986, this time and it does contain the extended version of “Higher Love” so still keeping with the mainstream!

An intense synth/funk workout sees him nearly morphing into Peter Gabriel. With both remixes by Steve Thompson & Michael Barbiero it is slower than I remember but still a huge 80’s production especially in the Dub. It includes horn arrangements by David Frank and it appeared in the film “Big Shots.”

So “Higher Love” sounds superb in its long form, remixed by Tom Lord-Alge from the production by Russ Titelman – an 80’s classic twelve inch mix

B-side is the keyboard led “Help Me Angel” where he does a Howard Jones and plays all the instruments. This is polished up from the 1982 album, “Talking Back The Night”

NEW LINK 2017!!!
