Island/Universal's new remaster of Traffic's "Shootout at The Fantasy Factory" is the CD debut of the album's true original master and set of mixes as heard on the original U.S. vinyl L.P.,back when Island was an independant label,manufactured and distributed by Capitol.When Island's distribution deal with Capitol ended,Traffic submitted a revised master(used on all pre-2003 CD's),in which "(Sometimes I Feel So)Uninspired" was remixed,and "Roll Right Stones" was the subject of remixing,additional instrumental overdubbing,and editing(reducing the song from 13:40 to 11:47).Universal Music has now retrieved the original,unrevised master from Capitol,and it debuts on the May 2003 remaster.The sound quality blows away the old Mobile Fidelity Gold CD,with improved punch & clarity.Be cautioned only to buy a new(not used) copy when ordering from Amazon.Why? Because pre-2003 Island/Universal discs mistakenly state that "Roll Right Stones" is 13:40,but those CD's are made from the revised/remixed/edited album master,so those discs actually contain the 11:47 "Roll Right Stones".All of this was explained by Universal Music catalogue chief Bill Levenson in "ICE Magazine".

Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi, Chris Wood & the gang serve up another barnburning Traffic set with 1973's "Shoot Out At The Fantasy Factory." The title track is a phenomenal full-throttle rocker, one of Traffic's most powerful pieces. "Roll Right Stones" is a nearly 12-minute, laid-back jazz-popper, with great melodies & musicianship throughout. "Evening Blue" is a beautiful ballad, Chris Wood's "Tragic Magic" is a tasty, funky instrumental, and "(Sometimes I Feel So) Uninspired," despite the downbeat title, is actually a very uplifting tune, filled with great spirit & fine words of wisdom. Steve Winwood & company totally cook on this one: "Shoot Out At The Fantasy Factory" is another jazz/rock classic from Traffic.

While not as memorable as 'Low Spark', SOTFF does have it's moments: Evening Blue, The Title Track, Uninspired. The disc is a bit on the short side at 37.29 and the domestic 1st generation copies were average in terms of sound quality. The MOFI Gold version is light years ahead of any other version thus far in terms of you-are-there sonics. I'd wager it surpasses the newly remastered version as well. If you can find the gold version, grab it while you can, well worth owning.
