Spencer Davis Group: Stevie's Blues

It was my birthday on Friday, so I am allowed a Spencer Davis Group track.

In the course of an interview with Steve Winwood that is a bit on the exhaustive side even for me, Vintage Guitar Magazine says:
Probably the best example of Winwood’s guitar playing from his Spencer Davis years is “Stevie’s Blues” – almost inexplicably authentic and mature, with a gutsy, distorted guitar tone that’s amazing even by today’s standards.

Fabulous track, thanks.

Gene Santoro in his book Stir it Up paints a picture of Winwood as a sporadically brilliant, but all too often inconsistent performer.

I`m no expert, I must admit. What do others think ?
