There was a time when record companies gave bands time to create and do their thing. This was such a time. The first Traffic album was an amazing piece of work - the first made while "getting it together in the country" which really meant drinking loads and getting more than a little high. I anticipated the second album with bated breath. It did not let me down - it was more musical, less experimental and totally fascinating. Winwood was at his best and his band mates followed his lead. This album is a classic.
