Arc of a Diver was released in 1980 and is Steve Winwood's best album in my opinion.  Songs like "Spanish Dancer" and the title track are long, beautiful pieces of music that linger with you long after hearing without being earworm pop you get sick of hearing.  The cover is such a simple series of block colors that it is easily dismissed, but is so iconic and memorable you know exactly what it is with a glance. If "Valerie" had been on this album, it would have been perfect.
