Dave Mason was back on board when Traffic toured England in '71 and recorded this live LP. They do early Traffic essentials plus then-new Mason gems: Medicated Goo; Dear Mr. Fantasy; Sad and Deep As You even an inspired Gimme Some Lovin' !
To call Traffic "mercurial" might be an understatement. After a promising debut, the band (whose core consisted of vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Stevie Winwood, vocalist-percussionist Jim Capaldi, and winds player-keyboardist Chris Wood) variously broke up, saw Winwood's participation in the supergroup Blind Faith, reformed, and struggled with lineup expansions and contractions. Indeed, this 1971 live album recorded in London followed an unreleased Fillmore East effort by John Barleycorn's four-piece edition (the trio plus Blind Faith bassist Rick Grech). Now rhythmically augmented by Jim Gordon, ex-Dizzy Gillespie sideman Reebop Kwaku Baah, and the return of singer-songwriter Dave Mason for his third stint in the band, Traffic turns in a rich, eclectic set that didn't so much recap their career as retool it entirely. With Mason's more prosaic "Sad and Deep as You Are" and "Shouldn't Have Took More Than You Gave" alternating with the exotic impressionism of "40,000 Headmen," the good-natured R&B of "Medicated Goo," and the early staple "Dear Mr. Fantasy," this sounds like a band with a lot of promise. But typically, Mason's tenure this time 'round lasted just six performances. The feverish, polyrhythmic reworking of Winwood's Spencer Davis hit, "Gimme Some Lovin'," hints at the more fusion-oriented direction the band would take on its next studio album. Unfortunately, modern digital remastering hasn't improved the original recording's somewhat muddled sound. --Jerry McCulley
my review is fairly tainted by my initial liking of this record .. this was one of my first records that I had when I was growing up in Calcutta, India .. Read morePublished on Oct. 20 2003 by Preetam Datta
This fine live disc is a reminder of how well Dave Mason fitted into the band and how he added so much to their overall sound. Read morePublished on Dec 30 2002 by William Wood
Just bought my 5th copy of WTTC -- 3 LPs and 2 CDs. As a country dj, I discovered Traffic via the rhythmic Gimme Gimme Good Lovin'. Then found 40,000 Headmen on the flipside. Read morePublished on Nov. 7 2002 by Brian Wilshire
