Welcome to the canteen by a Traffic fan,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Welcome To The Canteen (MP3 Download)
I've always liked Traffic right from the Dave Mason 'Paper sun' Days through to 'When the Eagle flies'. This album is a live snapshot of the band taken at the end of the Dave Mason era. I love the album although it is very much of its time and there are various glitches in the technical recording but for me these do not detract from the atmosphere and delivery of some very fine songs.
There are only 6 songs four on side one and two on side 2. For me the highlights are 40,000 Headmen, Shouldn't have took more than you gave and Gimme some lovin'. In true Traffic style most renditions have the feel of musicians jamming together and enjoying every moment.
The later 'On the Road' live album, although very much featuring extended and improvised versions is quire different in feel.
I would recommend this to die hard Traffic fans btu then they've probably already got it anyway
