3.0 out of 5 stars Last Exit for Traffic, 19 Mar. 2011
This review is from: When The Eagle Flies (Audio CD)
I now have all Traffic releases. This was the final LP (when they were called LP's) and there is a clear sign that the muse is waining. But, If you like Traffic, there is enough here for you. Still lots of nice jazz rhythms and soulful singing from Stevie. Runs out of steam near the end. But at Amazon's price it is a bargain, you wont find it in many record shops, to pick up off the shelf. So, if you are interested and can't make up your mind, it is worth it for track two alone, "Dream Gerrard", think no more, just buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Traffic John Barleycorn Must die, 31 Dec. 2010
Originally a Stevie Winwood solo album entitled Mad Shadows but became a Traffic CD. I bought this as a present as I already owned the Vinyl and have a CD copy of my own. It is a wonderful fusion of rock, folk and jazz, with the soul quality of Winwood's voice. The title track is an old folk song about the attempts of the population to give up alcohol in the fifteenth century. It's like a mellow King Crimson, full of wonderful melodies and in typical Prog rock fashion, extended tracks, giving complete song collages instead of straightforward pops song of verse, chorus, verse and fade out.
I can't recommend this CDJohn Barleycorn Must Die highly enough but it comes with a warning, you will probably wish to search out the other Traffic CD's avaiable, but that's no bad thing.
