Talking Back to the Night by Steve Winwood is the latest record I’ve uploaded to my computer. I bought the album, last week, at the Black Plastic record store, which has a brilliant collection of old and new vinyl.
I first heard Talking Back to the Night pretty soon after it was first released in August 1982. A guy I used to knock around with back in the early eighties was a big music fan, and I remember hearing this round at his house and borrowing the album a few days later. I think I taped it on to a cassette (remember them?), but I’ve long since lost it, along with all my other old cassettes.
The most well known track from the album is Valerie, which appeared on many a “soft rock” compilation. In fact I have it on a Soft Rock Anthems CD. My favorite track though is the title track, Talking Back To The Night (Remix Version), which I’m going to add to My Imaginary Jukebox.
Having listened to the album again, I’m glad I bought it (for the grand total of $1.95 plus tax!), and it was good to listen to it again, but I can’t see me playing it on a regular basis.
Here’s the remixed version of Talking Back To The Night (Remix Version)
