    Thanks for this upload…brings back lotsa memories! I saw Traffic in 1970
    at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago. Dave Mason was still with them. Chris
    Wood played flute. Awesome show. Hey, I may be old, but I got to see all
    the cool bands!

  3. Repetitive Lyrics is a weakness in composing good songs. It shows nothing
    more or ran out of beautiful words to add to the harmony of the song. This
    is where the Beatles recognized the repetitive and songs that have
    different lyrics but the same tune in which they a avoided. A set of lyrics
    sung over and over is not only annoying. It also SUCK BIG TIME.

    Posnetek tega koncerta skupine Traffic je bil pred davnimi leti na sporedu
    RTV Slovenija v črno-beli sliki…….

  5. Did you improve upon the sound, Wayne? I purchased the DVD that was
    released a few years back but the sound was just OK and not like a rich,
    multi-track sounding professional recording. Did you tweak it at all?

  6. wonder where dave mason is he must have left the band,by the way that is
    not a fender jazzmaster but instead a gibson firebird fyi

  7. Thank you so much for posting this. I’ve been a huge Traffic fan since I
    first heard of them in the early eighties. So little good footage of the
    band at their peak. An hour well spent for sure.

    WHILE ERIC C. MAY RULE; DON’T FORGET THESE EQUALLY IMPORTANT ARTISTS (at
    the time) Dave Mason, Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi. without all of them…I
    think none of this would be !

    tony peacock peacock. Could you post in the description the starting time
    in each song please so we can jump to whatever song we like without having
    to search for it? Just use the format below
    0:01 You can all join in
    3:36 Pearly Queen
    18:53 Vagabond Virgin
    24:15 40,000 Headmen

  12. Somewhat dated, but somehow still essential. Didn’t realize how much Mason
    contributed to this album. His solo output generally left me underwhelmed.
    Then again, the overall vibe I got from Winwood’s solo work was slickness
    rather than soulfulness. Some people really need to be in a band, I guess.

    This album, Dave Mason’s Alone Together, Music from Big Pink and American
    Beauty by the Dead: Absolute masterpieces. Must haves for any true
    connoisseur of 60s rock.

  14. Traffic is yet another reason 60s music is superior to that of any other
    decade in rock.
    Traffic is a name most people wouldn’t fire if asked to list great 50s
    bands. And yet there they were in 1968, putting out timeless songs like
    these.
    Thanks, Tony, for posting this gem.

  15. This album is my personal favorite of Traffic. It’s right up there with
    other 2nd effort disks like The Band. What a sound!
    

  16. Bhavya Andrea Heiny on

    Thank you for reminding us of our roots! I knew I loved Stevie&Co but am
    sorry to say, time has passed and I forgot just how much they meant to me.
    Much more than nostalgia… Wow…

  17. This was the time when bands would go to the country to ‘get it together’.
    What a world of riches rock music was for those of us growing up in the
    60s. And at the time it just seemed normal!

  18. Not as great as the LANDMARK CLASSIC DEAR MR FANTASY however it is still
    quite good. One could argue that for it’s time Pearly Queen rivals and
    conquers any Hendrix or Cream for Heavy stoner’s blues!Mix in the twinges
    of progressive on 40,000 and folk leanings of all right and you got a
    recipe for a classic unheralded 60’s gem!

  19. Fell in love with Traffic when I first heard this album in ’68, and still
    am in love after all these years. Winwood never gets old, and their sound
    is still refreshing! This and Barleycorn are still my fav’s.

  20. Musicians in any other form of music, other than rock, get better with age,
    somehow, which is a complete lie, but, not withstanding, the truth is when
    that little window opened up in the mid to late 60’s
    …it was not for very long…my thing now, knowing that musicians get
    better with age, now would be a good time for these seasoned musicians to
    make it even better..and we all know of the losses of time…and all that
    jazz…

  21. On this album is one of the few opportunities that you will find Winwood
    and Mason singing and playing on the same songs. A Mason song with that
    Winwood B3 – Wow!

  22. Am I getting a bad feed or is this vinyl skip-ski-ski-skipp-ping? Good
    tunes though. Always dug Winwood and his work with Clapton and Muddy etc.
