Back in the High Life

Nice clean vinyl and cover. Includes insert with lyrics

Back in the High Life is the fourth solo studio album by English rock musician Steve Winwood. Released in 1986, it was a top ten hit on the album charts in the United States, peaking at #3, and has sold over five million copies. The single "Higher Love" topped the singles chart and won the Grammy Award for "Record of the Year"; "Back in the High Life Again" (US #13), "The Finer Things" (US #8, the second biggest hit from the album), and "Freedom Overspill" (US #20) were also big hits.  After 20 years with the label, this was Winwood's last studio album with Island Records.  While Winwood would play most of the instruments on this record, he would also have a number of guest musicians, unlike his prior several albums which were entirely recorded by Winwood on all instruments.  The album also features collaborations in backing vocals, featuring Chaka Khan in "Higher Love", and James Taylor in "Back in the High Life Again". It also features the Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh performing slide guitar and co-writing the track "Split Decision".
