5.0 out of 5 stars Peak Time Traffic
This album is a must for any music lover let alone admirers of Steve Winwood & Co. The playing and recordings are superb with the Traffic nucleus of Winwood, Capaldi and Wood being augmented by the mighty Muscle Shoals rhythm section and Reebop.
This is one of the best bands ever formed at the top of their game. Steve Winwood has never been better before or since...

3.0 out of 5 stars An old friend
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...

4.0 out of 5 stars Winwood's Brew, 26 May 2013
This review is from: On The Road (Audio CD)
When I first purchased "On The Road" I did not like it at all, this was after buying "Traffic" & "mr fantasy" I just couldn't understand what the band were trying to do.
Then I got into Miles Davis's electric period, listening to 1970's albums such as "Pangea" & "Jack Johnson" (also worth checking out if you are into 70's rock but want to listen to something a little more challenging).
So then revisiting "On the Road", it's as if the scales had fell from my eyes, because what I now heard were really imaginative extended versions of great Traffic songs (sometimes a little self indulgent, but that part of the musical genre the band were attempting).
Imagine if you went to this concert expecting a greatest hits set & this is what you got(I don't think you would be a happy bunny)!
So all I can advise is if you like a bit of 1970s' jazz/rock fusion this record will be right up you alley, but if you expecting Dave Mason type tracks like "Hole in my shoe" & "You can join in" you might want to give this particular Traffic record a wide birth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roger Hawkins' brilliant drums, 13 Oct. 2007

This review is from: On The Road (Audio CD)
I too bought this album in the 1970s and was knocked out by Roger Hawkins' inspired drums on The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys. Despite decades of listening since then I've never heard anything better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Actually 'On the road', 4 Dec. 2008
By

This review is from: On The Road (Audio CD)
The first reviewer is referring to 'on the road' as there are no 18 minute tracks on 'Low spark' nor is the track 'I feel so uninspired' on 'Low spark', the second reviewer clearly is referring to 'Low spark'. Having said that 'On the road' is a terrific album, which has real sustainability. The long workouts build up a great momentum which don't pale after years of listening. Very rewarding
