5.0 out of 5 stars 1st TRAFFIC album... discrepancies explained !!! 27 Feb 2001
By C. Steven Blue - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
O.K. Let me see if I can explain all the confusion surrounding the latest releases of Traffic's landmark first album, "Mr. Fantasy" or, as it was first titled in the U.S., "Heaven Is In Your Mind." There are three remastered versions of this album that have been released in the past year and a half. All three versions are currently available on Amazon.com. The first release (in October 1999) is Mr. Fantasy [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED] [IMPORT]: This is the original STEREO ENGLISH version of this album, and it includes as bonus material the original MONO AMERICAN version of the album. The next release (in August 2000) is MR. Fantasy [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED] [EXTRA TRACKS]: This is the original MONO ENGLISH version of the album, and it includes as bonus material the four missing songs that were included on the American version of the album, plus the A-side of the rare single, "Here We Go 'Round The Mulberry Bush." The third release (also in August 2000) is Heaven Is In Your Mind [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED] [EXTRA TRACKS]: This is the original STEREO AMERICAN version of the album (and the one, I might add, that I have been waiting for at least 15 years to arrive, THANKS!!!). It includes as bonus material the two tracks from the English version that were dropped on the American version, plus the A-side and B-side of the rare single, "Here We Go 'Round The Mulberry Bush." I hope this explains the complaints everyone is having about these releases. The great thing is that, for the first time on CD, you can have whatever version you grew up with to enjoy, and remastered to boot! And for the completist fan, you can have all the versions. And if you are new to Traffic, I highly recommend this one, the AMERICAN STEREO version, but then I'm biased (this is the one I grew up with)! No matter which version you choose, Traffic's first album is a psychedelic treat not to be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Fantasy by another name 11 Jan 2001
By Wayne Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Although most critics rate this as the best Traffic album, I'd definitely rank it third. Heaven is in your mind was essentially the UK album Mr. Fantasy without two tracks and resequenced. Using the sequencing from the US release (and adding the two tracks cut from the previous vinyl version plus two tracks from the soundtrack album Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush)Island has reissued the album with terrific sound.
There are problems. The booklet is very skimpy (particularly when compared to the UK version) consisting of little more than the credits and the two covers for the album (which were the same save for the title). What is really mystifying is why Island didn't just release the UK version of Mr. Fantasy. That version includes all the original tracks plus 8 of the original mono mixes. The bonus tracks from Heaven is in your mind were added to Traffic (the band's second album).
Perhaps Bill Levenson (who supervised this reissue) felt that there would be more interest from fans in this with the bonus cuts vs. the mono mixes. It's hard to figure what logic dictates what gets released and doesn't. Anyhow, this fine reissue would probably do for most fans but I'd recommend the UK reissues from 1999 for dedicated fans. All three releases have additional bonus tracks (5 on Traffic and 6 on John Barleycorn Must Die).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Job -- And Yet Another Wrinkle in the early Traffic Catalog 6 Jun 2012
By Bruce Eder - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
NOTE: THIS REVIEW APPLIES PRINCIPALLY TO THE MAY 2012 SUNDAZED CD OF THE US MONO VERSION OF TRAFFIC'S HEAVEN IS IN YOUR MIND.

Sorting out the early Traffic catalog is about as confusing to the average listener as working out the Beatles' US and UK libraries for the low-level fan, and much for the same reason, mostly having to do with the differing philosophies about albums and singles on the two sides of the Atlantic. In America from the early 1960s onward, singles were often used to promote accompanying albums as well as careers, and there was every reason to throw the single that everyone presumably already knew (and liked) from the radio onto whatever album was issued in connection with it. In England, however, albums and singles were usually treated as completely separate entities by the record labels -- issued on different occasions, and often a bit (and in this case, quite a bit) later than any singles. The only place where they normally intersected was on "greatest hits" and "best of" compilation LPs.

And so the MR. FANTASY album, as their debut on Island Records was known in England, did not have the group's first two singles, "Paper Sun" and "Hole In My Shoe," on it -- which was just as well from the group's standpoint, as most of the album was recorded a bit later than those singles, and mostly after the point where they had pretty much abandoned the sitar, and at a moment where, in terms of direction, the group were sorting out their internal dynamics by casting their lot with Steve Winwood rather than with Dave Mason. And in that connection, another complicating factor was Mason's departure following the completion of MR FANTASY -- the result was that by the time that album was issued in England in December of 1967, it was a snapshot of the group that, essentially, was no longer valid. By the time the group's US label, United Artists Records, was preparing the American release, however, they saw no reason not to include "Paper Sun" and "Hole In My Shoe" on the album -- the presence of which, as two eminently accessible pop/psychedelic numbers, could only help sell a long-player by a band that was still mostly an unknown quantity in America -- and, in the process, remove a pair of Mason's songs, as he didn't seem to figure in the future of the group at that point. That doesn't mean that the US version is necessarily "better" than the UK original, or even preferable, although a case could be made that it is easier to absorb with the two single A-sides present. But it did mean that the US album, retitled HEAVEN IS IN YOUR MIND (with some variations, which made for still more confusion in retrospect), which was the way many longtime US fans first heard the group (though it only reached No. 88 on the American charts), had a distinctly separate identity. (The UK version didn't show up on American shores until much later). And if one thinks about it a bit and recalls the box set craze of the early 1990s, it's just possible to visualize a box set devoted to the different permutations of this album (stereo/mono -- US/UK etc.).

Sundazed Records previously had the US mono version of HEAVEN IS IN YOUR MIND out on vinyl, and there was a CD version of the US mono album issued on a UK Island CD (see how complicated this is starting to get?) around 1999 -- counting the different cover art on both sides of the Atlantic, it gets very difficult to keep track of what one may have heard, or which version(s) one may already own, or which is better. But whatever way one got (or gets) to hear this record, it is a lot of fun and pretty intense, a strangely progressive and spaced-out mix of psychedelia, jazz, folk, and pop-rock, done in a truly freewheeling spirit, all very trippy and very British and mostly played superbly. Concerning the playing, that's more complicated here than it would be on the UK version of the album, owing to the presence of those two single sides (and, with them, Dave Mason's considerable influence on the early group). Mason's use of the Mellotron on a pair of tracks ("Hole In My Shoe," "No Face No Name And No Number") also comes off very strikingly vivid in the mastering of this CD, as much as the drums and bass on "Heaven Is In Your Mind," or Winwood's organ elsewhere. And for the uninitiated, there will be surprises -- between the sitars, the flutes, and the Mellotron and the trippy ambiance in a lot of this material, a neophyte listener might expect this record to intersect with the work of such pop/psych bands as, say, the Moody Blues, of the same era; but it doesn't -- if anything, with the playing as solid as it is here from the rhythm section on up, a lot of HEAVEN IS IN YOUR MIND is closer in spirit and impact to the Rolling Stones' subsequent BEGGARS' BANQUET (which, no coincidence, was the work of the same producer), but mostly with a richer sound palette than the Stones mustered, even with Brian Jones still in the lineup.

Even on this freshman effort, these guys were playing circles around most of the competition, and Traffic's approach to music was all their own and completely experimental in structure and content. Heard today, at its most accessible the album comes off as experimental pop, and not like too much else that was around (or crossing the Atlantic) in late 1967/early 1968. Only the music hall-influenced numbers, such as "Berkshire Poppies," seem a little weak, and that's only when heard out of context with the rest of the album.

This particular edition was made off of the original Philips Records masters, and even the most twee and spacy moments have some serious intensity to the playing and singing, and the overall production, that sets it apart from light psychedelia of the era. It's a masterful job, and just as good in 2012 as it was in early 1968.

5.0 out of 5 stars Respectful Remastering of Winwood's Masterwork 7 July 2001
By BluesDuke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As a band, Traffic lived up to its legend; in the pantheon of Steve Winwood's career, they were (and remain) his shining moment, none better than their debut music (issued, I hasten to correct, under the title "Heaven Is In Your Mind" in England and as "Mr. Fantasy" in the U.S.; I had the original album in 1967-68 on United Artists), at least until "John Barleycorn Must Die" would appear. The band's oft-expressed motto was "to sound like the same group but never to sound the same," and that they did, from the breezily psychedelic pop of "Paper Sun" ("We're A Fade, You Missed This" was the rest of "Paper Sun"'s finale) to the rumbling shuffle of "Giving To You"; from the soulful balladry of "No Face, No Name, No Number" to the blues-meets-the-Band workout of "Dear Mr. Fantasy". Winwood had picked himself some sympatico teammates: steady drummer/support singer Jim Capaldi, and underrated reedman/keyboardsman, the late Chris Wood, and they fashioned some of the most endearing material of the latter psychedelic period - but Traffic wasn't strictly a psychedelic band. Listen more closely and you hear them mocking as much as embracing the idea, not to mention they don't entirely let go of their R and B roots even when careening off into pop absurdism as they do so pleasantly. This album deserved to be exhumed and remastered, and the bonus material is just as engaging. Traffic was a gift to late-1960s British rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Psychodelic Masterpiece 12 Sep 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the true Master Works of the Psychodelic Era. This album, along with Sgt. Pepper's, Magical Mystery Tour, Axis: Bold As Love, Are You Experienced and a few others represents the "high water mark" of Music of this (or any) century. This (these) milestones in Music are "Lenses" through which everything that came before was projected onto all that has (and will)come in the future.
