On the road again
Studio artist getting urge to take a band on stage
(APi — Steve Winwood, come to America to promote his solo Island LP, “Talking Back to the Night,” has the idea to put a band together, tour with it and make his next Ll* with the band.
After 12 years on the road, he hasn’t been in a band since 1974.
First he was in the Spencer Davis Group, which had its first hit in 1964, playing keyboards, guitars and singing; then Traffic, with Chris Wood, Jim Capaldi and Dave Mason; then Blind Faith, with Erie Clapton, Ginger Baker and Hick Grech — a supergroup which lasted for only one album, then four more years of Traffic.
"The urge to get a band and go on the road has got to me a bit,” Winwood says. “I don’t have any pressure to do it. I always think that’s the best incentive — that you want to do it rather than someone else wants you to do it.
i’ve been to a few concerts, and I caught myself thinking I would really like to be on stage doing some playing.”
In 1974, Winwood recalls, “I felt I was never ahead When the tour finished, there was pressure to make an album and try to find time to write. Then there was pressure to tour again. I decided the only way I could escape from that was not to have a band.”
Winwood made his first solo album, “Steve Winwood,” for Island, in 1977. He says, “It wasn’t successful at all. The writing left a bit to be desired.
After the first, non-selling, solo album, Winwood says, “I thought I had to do something fairly radical. I thought if I could get the right material I could do it on my own. I always toyed with the idea of multitracking. I’d done it in various half-hearted ways on different albums. I got a lot of opposition from the publisher and the record company. I’m sure that spurred me on a bit.
“I sunk nearly all the money I’d got at the time in building a studio with fairly basic equipment in my
house. I couldn’t afford to record anywhere else, and no producer would have wanted to work there. I thought I’ll do it alone, write, sing, play all the instruments.
“It was very tortuous — so much work and it took so long. I was convinced at the end of it that the publisher and record company must be right.”
Then the album, “Arc of a Diver,” became the most successful Winwood ever had.
"I had to reconsider things,” he recalls. “Maybe I had a way of making an album which gets well accepted. So I thought I’d give it another shot.” The result was “Talking Back to the Night,” released at the end of August.
Winwood worked with American lyricist Will Jennings on it. They also wrote four songs on “Arc of a Diver.”
“I found it very interesting to work with someone who has worked in a competitive writing atmosphere like Nashville. He doesn’t sit around waiting for inspiration. He sits down and works all the time.
The title ‘Talking Back to the Night’ came about when Will was working on a lyrical idea about a sax player he had known. It was about how people burn themselves out or inflict self-destruction on themselves for the sake of their art. We felt it’s a relic of the attitude that the artist must suffer in order to create better work.
“I had worked with and loved people who destroyed themselves. It happened so much I felt this was something I wanted to express in an album. So every song in some way relates to that....
‘“There’s a River’ is a kind of hymn to being alive and healthy. People have asked me whether I’ve caught religion when they’ve heard it. I haven’t particularly caught religion. But it has kind of ecclesiastical undertones or overtones in a musical sense.”
