This is one of the best bands ever formed at the top of their game. Steve Winwood has never been better before or since and that's saying something. His guitar work is fantastic as are his keyboards and vocals. Chris Wood's sax is sparse, searching and uniquely wonderful. The drumming as someone mentioned before in another review is sublime especially on "Low Spark".
A thing of beauty and a joy forever, beg, steal or borrow it now!
A "TIMELINE" REVIEW...
PLAY 1...Jazz and R'nB - what?? It doesn't sound like Traffic, I expected pop, like "Hole In My Shoe", etc.
PLAY 2...No I don't get it. The tracks are too long... I don't know what's it's all about. (Have I been done?).
PLAY 3...I'll play it again - you never know. Hey! I like "Low Spark" and "Glad/Freedom Rider"! (I get those two anyway!)
PLAY 4...Yes, "Low Spark" and "Glad/Freedom Rider" are excellent. Wait! ...tracks 4 and 5 are al-right now! I get it!
PLAY 5...Yep! Cool album, I love it all! It's terrific, what incredible musicianship, what an incredible achievement live!
PLAY 6...And for the next 40 yrs...visionary...genius...perceptive...worthwhile...appreciated...I never tire of it! (etc, etc).
WARNING! IT MAY TAKE SEVERAL LISTENS TO FULLY APPRECIATE THIS MORE MEANINGFUL, BETTER ALBUM! (*Get 2003 remaster).
The band is excellent, as well as Traffic it features Barry Becket (keyboards), David Hood (bass) and Roger Hawkins (drums) who were in demand session musicians at the time. They were part of the famous Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section whpo could be heard on dozens of hit singles, including tracks by Percy Sledge, Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, The Staple Singers, Cat Stevens, Duane Allman, Joe Cocker, Paul Simon, Bob Seger, Rod Stewart and Willie Nelson.
I love the musicianship and songwriting. I played my favourite track "Sometimes I Feel so Uninspired" to my music teacher in 1974 and I think he was impressed - to me it still sounds remarkable. This is a great album.
the sound quality is very well recorded, all the gigs are performed exceptionally with very long instrumental sections.
It's on my desktop, it's in my car and I wish I'd known about it years ago.
If you have any doubt as to whether to buy this or not - go for it. For the sake of a few quid, this could easily become one of your favourite albums.

Still one of the best albums of its time. Traffic with muscle shoals unbeatablePublished 5 months ago by One of the 40,000
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. Read morePublished on 26 May 2013 by Jimi Jac

Highly recommended to any 60's / 70's blue fan
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. Read morePublished on 13 July 2010 by C. R. Davis
