Winwood has sold over 50 million records in the course of his five-decade career. He has remained a primary figure in Rock ‘n’ Roll, a respected innovator who has helped to create some of the genre’s most celebrated achievements. His skills as a composer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist have developed an impressive catalog of popular music.

His solo career has yielded a rich catalog of popular songs including “Back In The High Life,” “While You See A Chance,” “Roll With It,” “Valerie” and “Higher Love.” The latter was nominated for seven Grammy Awards, winning three: Record Of The Year, Best Engineered Non-Classical Album and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. Roll With It received four Grammy nominations in 1989 and won Best Engineered Album. Winwood’s most recent solo albums, About Time and Nine Lives, have received critical acclaim and earned him one of his highest Billboard chart entries.

Winwood released his first-ever live album as a solo artist on September 1, 2017. Winwood: Greatest Hits Live is a new 2CD/4LP collection sourced from personal archives of live performances. With a 23-song tracklist handpicked by Winwood, featuring his best-loved songs, Greatest Hits Live offers fans a definitive musical portrait of his five-decade career.

The expanded 2CD/4LP gatefold package features rare, previously unreleased material touching on all aspects of Winwood’s extensive catalog, including contemporary arrangements of the music he created with the Spencer Davis Group, Traffic, Blind Faith and on his classic solo recordings. The collection channels R&B, Jazz, Funk, Folk, Classic Rock, Pop and Afro-Caribbean & Brazilian rhythms, highlighting Winwood’s unique ability to fuse multiple genres into a singular, cohesive musical expression. The record not only demonstrates Winwood’s mastery of the Hammond B3 Organ, but also showcases his remarkable guitar skills.

Winwood forges ahead undaunted, continuing to create and perform new and exciting material. He remains one of the most important and influential artists in all of popular music.
