Somebody Holds the Key

This song, written by Steve Winwood, was originally released in 1969. Is it silly that I was surprised by how good he sounds in this video, so many years later? I could have shared some great covers of "Can't Find My Way Home," but this acoustic version was so perfect, imo, that I wanted to stop there:

Anybody remember this album?

You're absolutely right: this version is as near to perfect as it could be.

I think that this is the perfect setting, too (the crackle from the fire is even meaningful).

There's more feeling in this later version, and maybe that's because Steve's got some years under his belt this time around.

Oh, I remember. LOVE this acoustic version. I confess, I also thought for an old timer he sure does sound terrific... who am I kidding, for an any timer, he sounds terrific!
