Traffic-Low Spark of High Heeled Boys-Steve Winwood,the late Jim Capaldi

Not always considered a Progressive Rock band, nevertheless the title song to Traffic‘s most popular album, November 1971’s Low Spark of High Heeled Boys , fits easily high atop any list of the most popular and creative songs of the Progressive Rock era.

Steve Winwood- Back in the High Life

By his mid-twenties, Steve Winwood already may have  been on a hall of fame career pace, singing and playing hits as a mere teenager with the Spencer Davis Group (“Gimme Some Lovin’ “,” I’m a Man”), Traffic, and Blind Faith.

Watching Martin Scorsese’s The Last Waltz , The Band’s Thanksgiving 1976 swan song , shows how that kind of epiphany could happen . But the earliest work of this quintet with the generic name is no less impressive : when Rolling Stone magazine writers compiled their Top 500 Albums of All Time , The Band’s 1968 debut Music from Big Pink ranked at #34 .

Eric Clapton-Forever Man pt 2

This portion of my in-depth interview with Eric Clapton is  gut-wrenching, heartbreaking, yet ultimately life affirming. It finds the acclaimed musician successfully in recovery after more than twenty years of substance abuse, experiencing a spiritual rebirth that can only be described as miraculous; his musical career at an all time high; and then the most […]

Eric Clapton-Forever Man part 1

This exclusive interview with Eric Clapton covers a lot of ground simply because no matter what era or decade you pick since 1965, EC was there in a remarkably consistent, influential way: Yardbirds; John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers;  Cream; Blind Faith with Steve Winwood; Derek and the Dominos with Duane Allman. And yet he has made a […]
