Format: Audio CD
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 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!

UNEQUALLED, KNOCK-OUT LIVE ALBUM!
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).

I bought this album in 1973 after reading a rave review in the Times. It's still an album I play regularly. For fans of music today, 18 minute tracks probably seem a little self indulgent. However, this and Birds of Fire by the Mahavishnu Orchestra got me into jazz.

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.

Don't buy this cd thinking its part of the Traffic remaster program. its the old terrible island masters version the sound is truly terrible. If you want the very good remaster go to amazon US. I don't even think they have bothered to release the remasterd version in the UK.

A brilliant live recording of Traffic at their most Jazzy (for want of a description!) I've got this on Vinyl, Cassette, CD and was being lazy I got it on download! Always been one of my favourite discs - I went through 3 cassettes in my ancient car player. The whole group was on top form when they recorded this.

if you like this band, do yourself a favour, buy this live recording.
the sound quality is very well recorded, all the gigs are performed exceptionally with very long instrumental sections.

As live albums go this is one of the best. I've got most of Traffic's other studio albums on vinyl (and CD) and listen to them regularly (especially John Barleycorn). I'd never heard this one before so I bought it a couple of months ago (Oct 08) and alongwith Hawkwind's "In Search of Space", this is one of only two albums on my desktop as a shortcut.

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.

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.
