Ένας ακόμα από τους πρωταγωνιστές της μυθικής περιόδου ‘60s – ‘70s, επιφανής βεβαίως του May born club, είναι ο Steve Winwood, singer-songwriter και multi instrumentalist, γεννημένος το 1948.
Ακούμε δυο συνθέσεις του από το αριστούργημα των Traffic, John Barleycorn Must Die.

Another protagonist of the mythical ’60s – ’70s period, a prominent member of course of the May born club, is Steve Winwood, singer-songwriter and multi instrumentalist, born in 1948.
We hear two of his own compositions, from Traffic’s masterpiece, John Barleycorn Must Die.


❝ Like a hurricane around your heart when earth and sky are torn apart
He comes gathering up the bits while hoping that the puzzle fits
He leaves you, he leaves you. Freedom rider
With a silver star between his eyes that open up at hidden lies
Big man crying with defeat, see people gathering in the street
You feel him, you feel him. Freedom rider
When lightning strikes you to the bone, you turn around, you’re all
By the time you hear that silent (or siren?) sound, then your soul is
In the
Lost and found
Forever, forever.Freedom rider
Here it comes ❞
