Steve Winwood ‎– Holding On (US 12″)

More Winwood to start the posts off for today.

From 1988 and a very electronic track produced and remixed with Tom Lord Alge. Another massive 10 min mix that keeps the synth and samplers at the fore front. There is some organ in there but you’ll have to wait for it. Maybe a bit too long.

B-side is the previously unreleased , “Gojuan” , an instrumental (based on the A-side) that sounds a bit like Yello/Art Of Noise; here with 2 slightly different mixes. It goes off into dance territory with plenty of studio experimentation and sort of meanders around for 5 minutes.

B1 – Gojuan (Aaghh Mix) – 5:05
