An album by Traffic

Fresh Sounding Debut

  • Oct 31, 1998
Rating:
+3
Whereas this recording is not Traffic's best work, it is very unique with the blending of many different flute, sitar, harp, organ, and more. Not to forget the superb Guitar work by David Mason. The song arrangements aren't as developed as on the classic John Barley Corn and Low Spark Recordings but the elements of folk, jazz, and rock make this a very listenable record.

About this topic

Wiki

In 1967, when still teenaged keyboardist Steve Winwood left the Spencer Davis Group (for whom he'd sung lead on hits like "Gimme Some Lovin'" and "I'm a Man") to start a new band with guitarist Dave Mason, few observers thought their idea of blending pop, rock, and jazz would work. Immediately, though, Traffic scored giant UK hits with Winwood's east-meets-west "Paper Sun" and Mason's acid-jazzy "Hole in My Shoe." Between those songs, the smoking-guitar driven title track, the swinging instrumental "Giving to You" and the haunting ballad, "No Face, No Name, No Number," Traffic's debut established both players as elite members of the new guard of late 60s British rock.--Billy Altman
