~~ ~~ Stevie Winwood at his best! Not much is known about the circumstances behind the recording, but it was apparently recorded in Jamaica (?) just after Traffic’s Shootout at the Fantasy Factory was recorded at Strawberry Hill in the Blue Mountains above Kingston. If you like Winwood’s organ or acidic guitar tone from this era with Traffic you’d definitely like this. Five songs, all instrumental except for some African chanting type stuff, this moves between African music to Meters-like funk to free jazz, but it all grooves. It’s really a treat to hear, and should be more well known. It dropped without a trace upon it's release, due to no one knowing it was a Winwood project because of the cover. Fantastic Album!
