This is from the Back In The High Life album. Steve wrote the music for the songs, but for this and many other songs on the album, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Will Jennings[/lastfm] wrote the lyrics.

This track was Winwood’s first #1 single as a solo artist. It also won two GRAMMYs in 1987 for Record Of The Year (beating Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” and Robert Palmer’s “Addicted To Love”), and best Male Pop Vocal Performance.

Chaka Khan sang on the album with Winwood, helping give it a Gospel feel.

Caller # 16 walks with the Renaissance Faire tickets at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784)!
