Traffic: Stevie Winwood, A Calm, Shy Superfreak
Al Kooper, Rolling Stone, 27 April 1968
IT WAS LATE 1965 and Mike Bloomfield was with Butterfield and I was with the Project. We were sitting in my apartment listening to a recording of a classic blues called 'Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out'. We were both aware of Stevie Winwood and we both flashed on how well he sang this song we had heard hundreds of times before by hundreds of other people.
