Traffic were one of the premier architects of the acid rock movement in the sixties and
blossomed further into one of the most important fusion super groups of the seventies. Their
recordings are the soundtrack to a generation of music enthusiasts that continues to this
day and will forever stand the test of time.
In 1971, the legendary founding members Stevie Winwood, Jim Capaldi and Chris Wood
sojourned on after a smash outing with "John Barleycorn Must Die" and continued the
winning streak with the groundbreaking classic "The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys."
Along with new members Jim Gordon (Derek & The Dominoes), Rick Gretch (Blind Faith) and
Rebop Kwaku Baah, Traffic was back and on a roll artistically unlike many other important
acts of the classic rock era.
Known for more than its amazingly cube shaped album cover, the multi-faceted music
inside was a non-stop enjoyment of sounds never heard or recorded since. Whether
standout tracks from the pens of Jim Capaldi like the hard rocking "Light Up Or Leave Me
Alone" or the powerful balladry of ancient sounds with the Winwood/Capaldi classic
"Rainmaker", this brilliant album will most certainly be known forever for its classic title track,
the massive twelve minute plus epic, "The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys." Filled with
explosive sax breaks by the late Chris Wood, the piano driven and vocal delivery of master
musician legend Stevie Winwood and the percussive vibrations of the late great Jim Capaldi,
Jim Gordon and the late Rebop Kwaku Baah, the song was destined to become a huge
Even further classics ensued with each of the lengthy six tracks that make up this arresting
masterwork.....how about Rick Gretch and Jim Gordon’s blazing smash "Rock ‘n’ Roll Stew" or
the Winwood/Capaldi classic "Many A Mile To Freedom." No matter where you go with this
album, it’s all about Traffic, classic Traffic, and it just doesn’t get much better than this.
