There are too many good things to say about this video. First, I have loved this song since the album came out in 1969. I remember dragging my mother to a record store in Montrose, California to buy the album: Blind Faith. I think it cost me close to 4 bucks. I’m quite sure that was all I had and plunged me into bankruptcy at the age of 10.
Despite the fact that every song on that album was great, this song always stood out to me, and when I found this video I flipped. First, the original recording used more than one guitar. But this solo loses none of the original feeling. And Steve Winwood’s voice. I can’t help but think of the 1960s. His voice perfectly represents music of that time, but sounds even better in this video.
