Format: Audio CD
This Traffic return has some decent songs- if you have enjoyed the solo music produced by Steve Winwood. It has a soulful feel and features some good blues-type guitar. Piano and organ feature heavily throughout. There is definitely a looser, tuneful feel to the cd when compared to some of the AOR pap produced by Winwood on the preceding 'Refugees' or 'Junction Seven'. A return to form then, and worth investigating at the second-hand prices being charged, but not quite vintage Traffic.

Had to wait for it , but one of the best Albums, with standout tracks Far From Home, Holy Ground, and This Train Won`t Stop. The last Tour with the late and Great Jimmy Capaldi. Memories of a fantastic concert too.

Okay so some might see this as another Steve Winwood album with Jim Capaldi coming along for the ride, however, although there may be a small grain of truth in this, there is also far more to this album that that.
Steve Winwood had particular reason to want to break away from the malign forces of record company A&R meddling in the recording process. The effect of that interference was perhaps only subtle and the, i.e. looking back at Junction Seven and Refugees of the Heart, these albums have more merit than many at the time declared. I never listened to them when they were released and now find that there is enough there to still make them worthwhile.

This "Traffic" album is a return to the musicians being in charge of the creative process. Even if it only performed the role that David Bowie's Tin Machine experiment did, i.e. freeing him from the demands of the record company, it would have been worthwhile, but it is actually a great collection of songs. Okay so the drafting in of at least a bass player and perhaps a guitarist to make it a genuine new version of Traffic would have broadened it out a bit but I am also realistic enough to know that the approach here made sense financially. A bigger group of musicians would have needed record company support just when these guys were trying to free themselves from record company control.

So this sounds more like a very good Steve Winwood album than a Traffic album but I'll live with that.
