TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 8 September 2014
With Dave Mason restored to the line-up after a brief period away, Traffic entered their most energized phase of creativity before Mason departed for a second time. 'Traffic' (1968) is a glorious collection of songs; Jim Capaldi and Steve Winwood's R&B-tinged rock workouts sit happily alongside Mason's classy folk/rock material and, for me, there is barely a weak moment here. The majestic 'Pearly Queen' and the subtle 'No Time To Live' are Winwood/Capaldi classics whilst Mason supplies a clutch of lovely tracks including 'Feelin' Alright' and 'Crying To Be Heard'. The bonus tracks are pretty decent too, with 'Medicated Goo' and 'Shanghai Noodle Factory' (from the 'Last Exit' LP) standing out. Although the first 3 studio albums [ 'Mr. Fantasy', 'Traffic' and 'John Barleycorn Must Die'] are all superb releases, on balance, 'Traffic' is the album I would buy first - it really is excellent, both musically and lyrically. Highly recommended.

I first had this album in vinyl back in 68' somewhere along the line it got sold unfortunately . Always a great band to see live and this album did them justice . Shame there are'nt any bands around these days with the high calibre of the very excellent Traffic .
