A Fender Rhodes through a Phaser possibly?

Can't be a P10 since it is an early instrumental version of "time is running out" circa 76-7 pre P10 and even pre P5. I think it was a rhodes or Hammond through a phaser, or a yamaha electric piano, all of which Winwood used circa 76-77. The synth lead sounds a lot like his multimoog which is all over the lp ( Steve Winwood) and which he used extensively in that era.

rhodes/wurli through a flanger?

I know Winwood used a wurlitzer ep at the time so that's probably the one he used for that sound (through a flanger). The synth lead is most likely Minimoog though, the multimoog didn't exist until mid/late 1978. I think there may be some polymoog on the first album too but I'm not totally sure.
