Stranger To Himself (2010 Remaster). Авторы текста и музыки. Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi. John Barleycorn (Must Die).

At only 22 years old, Steve Winwood sat down in early 1970 to fulfill a contractual commitment by making his first solo album, on which he intended to play all the instruments himself

John Barleycorn is a British folksong. John Barleycorn is a personification of barley, which is used to make beer and whisky. Many versions have been recorded over the centuries, Traffic’s being a very popular one. "John Barleycorn (Must Die)" Track Info. Written By Traditional. Arranged By Steve Winwood.

John Barleycorn Must Die" was originally intended to be a Steve Winwood solo effort. Though partway through the recording two other Traffic alumni were invited on the album, thus turning it into a Traffic project. This album also heralded a new and jazzier era of Traffic, which in my opinion made the band much more interesting. This album is Traffic coming into their own, musically and economically (as it was their first gold selling album). The Title track of the album is a very interesting one.
