THE Two Hottest Tunes in My Early Teenage Years.

These are the originals. And check out the thumb pick on the Bass :) This is Early 60's folks.

The vocalist is Steve Winwood, the following exerpt taken from Wikipedia:

Early years: 1960s

While still a pupil at Great Barr School[3] (which actor Martin Shaw also attended), Winwood was a part of the Birmingham rhythm and blues scene, playing the Hammond B-3 organ and guitar, backing blues singers such as Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, T-Bone Walker, Howlin' Wolf, B. B. King, Sonny Boy Williamson II, Eddie Boyd, Otis Spann, Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley on their United Kingdom tours, the custom at that time being for US singers to travel solo and be backed by pickup bands. At this time, Winwood was living on Atlantic Road in Great Barr, close to the Birmingham music halls where he played.

From the Spencer Davis group, to Blind Faith's single Magnificent album, to Ginger Baker's Air Force, to Traffic and beyond, Mr Winwood was central to rock and roll for a long time.


  1. I did not know that Steve Winwood did vocals for the Spencer Davis group. One more piece of the puzzle.

  2. Trestin, yea he's been around and not really well recognized.

  3. At what point did he stop being called 'Stevie Winwood?'

  4. Fredd. I don't know. I've never heard him called Stevie.
