Steve Winwood's solo career was picking up steam at this point. In the '60s, he made a name for himself in the Spencer Davis Group when he was still a teenager. His next stop was Traffic, then Blind Faith, then Traffic again. He spent about three years working on his first, self-titled solo album, which was released in 1977 and got little attention. Arc of a Diver
arrived in 1980 with the modest hit "While You See a Chance
," also written by Will Jennings. "Valerie" was the hit from his next album, Talking Back to the Night
. His next one, Back in the High Life
, made him a fixture on Pop and Adult Contemporary radio.
