I feel bad writing this review only after hearing of the tragic death of Jim Capaldi last Friday. He wrote the lyrics and played the drums on this final album of Traffic's of course. Rolling Stone at the time said that this album was fine musically but marred by some over ambitious Capaldi lyrics. What absolute bollocks. This has been my favourite Traffic album for a very long time and Jim's contributions are not an insignificant part of that.
The opening song 'Something New' is a great release, and sets the tone for this album. A great uplifting album as thought-provoking as anything Traffic ever produced and when combined with Winwood's effortless melodies on this set, it is truly a rewarding experience for any listener interested in this band. Or decent music for that matter.
'Dream Gerrard' with its spooky lyric courtesy of Viv Stanshall is a haunting piece if ever there was one. 'Graveyard People' is similarly inspired. If a little depressing! But musically the band is on song here. Big time. Only Winwood can convey as much spirit and moodiness with the keyboards!
Side 2 (of the original vinyl album) begins with 'Walking In The Wind' which is most noteable for its haunting melody (Winwood), lyrics (Capaldi) and bass line (Rosko Gee!). Goes on a tad too long but hey! didn't most songs of this era?
'Memories Of A Rock 'n Rolla' contains a great Capaldi lyric about the pitfalls of a rock 'n roll lifesyle and contains a great tempo change from the beautiful opening verses to the raucous last chorus. Musicianship at some kind of Zenith here. And then there is 'Love' which has to be among the top three Traffic ballads ever, alongside 'No Face No Name No Number' (1967) and 'Evening Blue' (1973).

Originally have this on viny(,back in the 70,s,) heard my favorite track on the radio, "Dream Gerrard", so deceided to purchase it on CD for use outside of the home. Love playing it on those long motorway journeys. Musically superb & vocally with Mr Winwood outstanding.

Got this after hearing Walking in the wind and Something new on radio when it first came out in the 70s

I am not as big a fan of Winwood's voice as some but still the high-spot of their rock, soul meets jazz stuff

I now have all Traffic releases. This was the final LP (when they were called LP's) and there is a clear sign that the muse is waining. But, If you like Traffic, there is enough here for you. Still lots of nice jazz rhythms and soulful singing from Stevie. Runs out of steam near the end. But at Amazon's price it is a bargain, you wont find it in many record shops, to pick up off the shelf. So, if you are interested and can't make up your mind, it is worth it for track two alone, "Dream Gerrard", think no more, just buy it.

As you would always expect from the musicianship of Stevie Winwood, filled with delights of rythymn and feeling, wrappped in poetic lyrics.
