Weariness with the grind of touring and recording prompted Winwood to leave Traffic and retire to sessioning for some years. Under pressure from Island Records, he resurfaced with his self-titled first solo album in 1977. This was followed by his 1980 hit Arc of a Diver (which included his first solo hit, "While You See a Chance") and Talking Back to the Night in 1982. Both albums were recorded at his home in Gloucestershire with Winwood playing all instruments.
"Dreaming" was released in 1979, it was the lead single from their fourth album Eat to the Beat. It peaked at #2 in the British singles chart. "Dreaming" was written by the group's principal songwriting partnership, Deborah Harry and Chris Stein.

"Pamela" was written by David Paich and Joseph Williams for the 1988 Toto album The Seventh One. It was the first single from the album, and it peaked at #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart becoming their final US hit to date.
