4.0 out of 5 stars The Bridge, 20 Jun 2011
A great album with no weak tracks. Seems to have become forgotten when it comes to lists of great albums, possibly because there is nothing controversial on it and they split up shortly afterwards.

Good to hear this again. Some regard it as Traffic's best but, personally I prefer the rawness of Mr Fantasy and the much overlooked second album. Not overly impressed with the second, bonus CD but it is there to make people like me buy it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Then Play ON, 24 Mar 2011
This review is from: Then Play On (Audio CD)
Arguably Fleetwood Mac's best album from the early, Peter Green, period. Recorded after Albatross, around the time Oh Well was laid down. It appears to be the old US version so some Danny Kirwan songs are removed to make way for Oh Well. Considering the amount of minutes you can get on a CD, you'd think some bright spark at the record company would re-instate the missing songs. I suppose we can expect a 'remastered, de-luxe' version at some stage. Money for old rope, as they say.

3.0 out of 5 stars An old friend, 13 July 2010
This review is from: On The Road (Audio CD)
Listening to On The Road was like reacquainting with an old friend. Some weaknesses, flaws, but overall a blast from the past. I just wish Traffic had stepped up a bit more. At times they seemed so laid back and poorly rehearsed. They were a great band but somehat overlooked except by a few. And as for Dave Mason, what did he do wrong? His songs may have been too commercial for Winwood but he made his contribution early on and seems to get no recognition, let alone inclusion such as at the celebration for Jim Capaldi.
