Steve Winwood: Can't Find My Way Home

Having managed to connect Steve Winwood with John Masefield, I may as well follow my obsession and choose this as today's music video.

This recent solo acoustic version of "Can't Find My Way Home" turned up on YouTube and Steve Winwood's website the other day. It gives you the opportunity to compare this performance to one he gave over 40 years ago with Blind Faith, for whom he wrote the song, at a free concert in Hyde Park. That sort of thing never used to be possible in popular music.

I chose another version of this, by Winwood and Eric Clapton from the 2007 Crossroads guitar festival, earlier this year. The two are playing some dates in Britain next year, but the ticket prices are terribly steep.
