I was watching VH1 and saw the video for Steve Winwood Back in the High Life. Has some great shots of old town Manassas back int he 80's. You can see the old Third Base and the farm where that shopping center by Geortown South sits.

I believe he was already in town for a concert or something like that. If that video was shot in Manassas today, it'd be a montage of gangbangers and illegals.

I am actually in the video in the street shot. It is Lake Brittle. The crew told us they were passing through to another venue and he really liked the area esp around the train station.

I recently rediscovered this video and was pleased to see it was filmed in Manassas. Where was the street scene filmed?

The video was shot in fall of 1986, it was a great fall that year upto november. Winwood was in the area touring. I saw him November 23, 1986 with my friends from EOBC at Ft Belvior, VA. The place was George Mason University.
