John Barleycorn (Must Die)

It has been recently Steve Winwood 63th birthday. He was one of the first rock musicians who took up traditional material for enriching with acoustic atmospheres their typical electric sound. To my opinion, "John Barleycorn (Must Die)" (from the eponymous 3rd Traffic album) is still now a folk-rock masterpiece that everybody should listen to with enchanted passion. Surely this song, recorded in 1970, has been widely influential to later authors of this musical genre.
Thank you, and Happy Birthday Mr. Winwood!!!

E 'stato recentemente il 63°compleanno di Steve Winwood. Steve è stato uno dei primi musicisti rock che ha adottato materiale tradizionale per arricchire con atmosfere acustiche il proprio tipico sound elettrico. A mio parere, "John Barleycorn (Must Die)" (dal terzo omonimo album dei Traffic) è ancora oggi un capolavoro di folk-rock che tutti dovrebbero ascoltare con incantata passione. Sicuramente questa canzone, registrata nel 1970, ha ampiamente influenzato autori posteriori di questo genere musicale.
Grazie e Buon Compleanno Mr. Winwood!

(Nice to learn, on the video posted by HOVMM, the story of such historical 1970 recording in The Netherlands, too....)
