Listened to some Traffic today and this band amazes me every time I listen to them. They wrote some good songs to there jammier songs like Low Spark of High Heeled Boys. Any way one of the best from the 60s and 70s

I like Traffic. I need to get some of their albums. I've heard alot of their music, but haven't really owned any of the albums. Pearly Queen is an awesome song!!

Currently listening to "Shoot Out at the Fantasy Factory".
4 songs on the entire lp. Yes, I'm listening to an lp.
I agree, the jammng with Traffic is one of the underappreciated
aspects of this band.

I recently revisited the first 2 Traffic LPs, with Dave Mason onboard...
Killer stuff...

Also, if you can find this, it's worth many a good listen:

Traffic: Stockholm, Sweden; September 5, 1967

01-Giving to You
02-Smiling Phases
03-Coloured Rain
04-Hole In My Shoe
05-Feelin' Good
06-Paper Sun
07-Dear. Mr Fantasy

I agree! Seems like dingling or tingting or whoever is posting this in every thread. I haven't clicked on it as it looks like virus bait. Everyone should just ignore another obvious troll.

If you like the jamming aspect of Traffic I highly recommend " On The Road " .

I've got Low Spark of High Heeled Boys and a greatest hits disc. I always felt Traffic was very underrated.

Traffic is definitely in my top 5, one of the best. I love John Barleycorn, my favorite post-Dave Mason album of theirs.

Traffic?

Right up there at the top in my book...right up there with
the ABB, Neil Young, Clapton, Santana, etc etc.

Favorite album probably "Low Spark".

Count me in for Traffic, as well. My band used to play Low Spark and it was a great one to jam on! Now we're working on "Light up or leave me alone". If you get a chance, rent or buy the DVD of the show from Santa Monica '77. It's a cool show to check out.

Digging this thread on one of my All-time favorite bands -- great comments -- those early ones like Smiling Phases, Hole in My Shoe, Heaven is in Your Mind etc --
When The Eagle Flies hasn't been mentioned, that's one that didn't work for me -- actually gave it a listen just recently w/as open ears as possible & it just seems like such a far cry from their earlier stuff...

Hi Stephen. Sorry to hear WTEF didn't work for you. My hubby found an unopened copy of WTEF a while back which made both of us happy and excited. Funny how what works musically for one doesn't work for the other.

I love Traffic, but I do find the live album I have - it may be "On the Road," I will check - to be somewhat sleepy. Maybe the problem was my expectations.

One of my all time favorite albums, not to mention early musical influences was a "Best Of Stevie Winwood" release that combined tunes from Spencer Davis, Traffic and Blind Faith. It came out in 1970 or 1971. I played the heck out of it. It never came out on CD, so I took songs from 5 or 6 different discs to recreate it in its original song order on CD. I even found the version of Crossroads that Stevie sings vocals on some compilation disc that was rereleased, so I got everything but one Spencer Davis tune. Great stuff.

I once heard Gregg Allman describe Traffic as, "the best band Muddy Waters ever had.". I believe he was referring to Muddy's, "London Sessions" album.

That is a great, great album. Look at the lineup for that recording:



Track Listing
1. Blind Man Blues
2. Key to the Highway
3. Young Fashioned Ways
4. I'm Gonna Move to the Outskirts of Town
5. Who's Gonna Be Your Sweet Man When I'm Gone?
6. Walkin' Blues
7. I'm Ready
8. Sad Sad Day
9. I Don't Know Why

Details
Contributing artists: Georgie Fame, Mitch Mitchell, Rick Grech, Rory Gallagher, Steve Winwood
Producer: Esmond Edwards, Ian Green
Distributor: Universal Distribution
Recording Type: Studio
Recording Mode: Stereo
SPAR Code: AAD

Album Notes
Personnel: Muddy Waters (vocals, slide guitar); Rosetta Hightower (vocals); Sam Lawhorn, Rory Gallagher (guitar); Carey Bell Harrington (harmonica); Seldon Powell (tenor saxophone); Ernie Royal, Joe Newman (trumpet); Garnett Brown (trombone); Steve Winwood, George Fortune (piano, organ); Rick Grech (bass); Mitch Mitchell, Herbie Lovelle (drums).
Recorded at I.B.C Studios, London England. Originally released on Chess (60013). Includes liner notes by Andy Schwartz.
Following in the footsteps of his fellow Chicago blues legend Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters journeyed across the big pond in 1972 to record an album with some of British rock's leading lights. Rory Gallagher, Rick Grech, Steve Winwood, and Mitch Mitchell were of the generation that had grown up loving Muddy's blues, and these sessions afforded them the opportunity to give something back to the man who had inspired them. The difference between the Brits' approach and the traditional Chicago style is immediately apparent, right down to the preponderance of very un-Chicago inside notes in Mitch Mitchell's drumming. However, the intent of these sessions was to put a new sheen on Muddy's music while not straying too far from its roots. In this respect, the album is a success.
The horn section that appears on some cuts is far less incongruous than on the notorious MUDDY, BRASS & THE BLUES. A guitars-only version of "Walkin' Blues" offers a rare (and unexpected in this context) peek at Muddy's Robert Johnson/Son House Delta roots. As is often the case with superstar sessions, this is not the place to begin for neophytes, but much of this album stands up well among Muddy's early-'70s U.S. recordings.

Hi ladymule, sounds like a good find -- yep a vinyl copy turned up recently for just a buck up my way -- I thought, gosh my favorite lineup of these guys, maybe I didn't listen to it enough back in the day etc. -- but, not with the life & passion as their earlier releases no matter how much I tried to like it -- how right you are, am always surprised myself at how an album sounds great to one listener & soso to another
