Not the first box set to distill Steve Winwood's far-reaching career into four discs, 2010's Revolutions: The Very Best of Steve Winwood does have a leg up on its 1995 predecessor, The Finer Things, by the virtue of covering the 15 years separating the two sets, plus adding a higher dosage of Blind Faith to the mix. Nevertheless, this 58-track box -- with its songs selected by Winwood himself -- shares a whopping 36 cuts with The Finer Things. It's such a strong overlap that it does suggest that there's truly a defined Winwood canon, and even though it doesn't contain the mega-hit "Roll with It," along with a handful of other notable tunes, Revolutions doesn't depart from that canon. Instead, it's a handsome, effective presentation of it, worthwhile for any serious fan who doesn't have an extensive Winwood collection. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Uncut (magazine) (p.122) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "REVOLUTIONS begins in mono, and in Midlands dancehalls, with sound of a 16-year-old Winwood singing in a voice close to Motown while creating ecstatic energy surges on a Hammond B-3."
This is a excellent compilation of Steve Winwood's career.
I especially liked the 4 tracks from his time in Traffic.
There are tracks from The Spencer Davis Group, Traffic, Blind Faith and his solo career.
All tracks are chosen by Steve Winwood himself!
