As with all the early Traffic albums, once you weed out the horrible Dave Mason numbers you are left with some timeless masterpieces.
The thing to remember about Traffic is that they were a really young band. Steve Winwood was 19 when this first came out. You have to keep that in mind & keep pinching yourself when you hear the beyond mature vocals and playing this teenager is capable of. It is almost inconceivable.

Of the tracks, a few note-worthy:
Heaven is in your Mind. Jim Capaldi's only gift was that of a great hippie/guru lyricist and you can literally smell the incense burning on this one. The song is a great trans-decade Love-In tune, -- psychedelic, trance-like, rhythm heavy, completly not dated.
Coloured Rain is one of the most fantastic songs about painting I have ever heard (summoning up the Spirit of).
No face, No Name, No Number features simply un-earthly vocals from Winwood - one of the rare, rare rock musicians capable of reaching Nirvana. Check out his harpsichord playing which comes with fantastic, errie effect (every synth bands should check out this tune).
Dealer is very cool.
Damn, this cd even has Dear Mr. Fantasy on it! a song which with awsome accuracy will become Winwood's signature.
Buy this CD. I'm not sure I could even count the stars............

As a band, Traffic lived up to its legend; in the pantheon of Steve Winwood's career, they were (and remain) his shining moment, none better than their debut music (issued, I hasten to correct, under the title "Heaven Is In Your Mind" in England and as "Mr. Fantasy" in the U.S.; I had the original album in 1967-68 on United Artists), at least until "John Barleycorn Must Die" would appear. The band's oft-expressed motto was "to sound like the same group but never to sound the same," and that they did, from the breezily psychedelic pop of "Paper Sun" ("We're A Fade, You Missed This" was the rest of "Paper Sun"'s finale) to the rumbling shuffle of "Giving To You"; from the soulful balladry of "No Face, No Name, No Number" to the blues-meets-the-Band workout of "Dear Mr. Fantasy". Winwood had picked himself some sympatico teammates: steady drummer/support singer Jim Capaldi, and underrated reedman/keyboardsman, the late Chris Wood, and they fashioned some of the most endearing material of the latter psychedelic period - but Traffic wasn't strictly a psychedelic band. Listen more closely and you hear them mocking as much as embracing the idea, not to mention they don't entirely let go of their R and B roots even when careening off into pop absurdism as they do so pleasantly. This album deserved to be exhumed and remastered, and the bonus material is just as engaging. Traffic was a gift to late-1960s British rock.

O.K. Let me see if I can explain all the confusion surrounding the latest releases of Traffic's landmark first album, "Mr. Fantasy" or, as it was first titled in the U.S., "Heaven Is In Your Mind." There are three remastered versions of this album that have been released in the past year and a half. All three versions are currently available on Amazon.com. The first release (in October 1999) is Mr. Fantasy [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED] [IMPORT]: This is the original STEREO ENGLISH version of this album, and it includes as bonus material the original MONO AMERICAN version of the album. The next release (in August 2000) is MR. Fantasy [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED] [EXTRA TRACKS]: This is the original MONO ENGLISH version of the album, and it includes as bonus material the four missing songs that were included on the American version of the album, plus the A-side of the rare single, "Here We Go 'Round The Mulberry Bush." The third release (also in August 2000) is Heaven Is In Your Mind [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED] [EXTRA TRACKS]: This is the original STEREO AMERICAN version of the album (and the one, I might add, that I have been waiting for at least 15 years to arrive, THANKS!!!). It includes as bonus material the two tracks that were dropped from the English version plus the A-side and B-side of the rare single, "Here We Go 'Round The Mulberry Bush." I hope this explains the complaints everyone is having about these releases. The great thing is that, for the first time on CD, you can have whatever version you grew up with to enjoy, and remastered to boot! And for the completist fan, you can have all the versions. And if you are new to Traffic, I highly recommend the AMERICAN STEREO version, but then I'm biased! No matter which version you choose, Traffic's first album is a psychedelic treat not to be missed.

Although most critics rate this as the best Traffic album, I'd definitely rank it third. Heaven is in your mind was essentially the UK album Mr. Fantasy without two tracks and resequenced. Using the sequencing from the US release (and adding the two tracks cut from the previous vinyl version plus two tracks from the soundtrack album Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush)Island has reissued the album with terrific sound.
There are problems. The booklet is very skimpy (particularly when compared to the UK version) consisting of little more than the credits and the two covers for the album (which were the same save for the title). What is really mystifying is why Island didn't just release the UK version of Mr. Fantasy. That version includes all the original tracks plus 8 of the original mono mixes. The bonus tracks from Heaven is in your mind were added to Traffic (the band's second album).
Perhaps Bill Levenson (who supervised this reissue) felt that there would be more interest from fans in this with the bonus cuts vs. the mono mixes. It's hard to figure what logic dictates what gets released and doesn't. Anyhow, this fine reissue would probably do for most fans but I'd recommend the UK reissues from 1999 for dedicated fans. All three releases have additional bonus tracks (5 on Traffic and 6 on John Barleycorn Must Die).
