Reseña de álbum
Though the two-CD set Smiling Phases finally put a comprehensive Traffic compilation on the market in 1991, the only readily available single-disc collection had long been Best of Traffic, originally issued halfway through the band's career. Thus, Feelin' Alright: The Very Best of Traffic, a 77-minute sampler for the CD era, was long overdue. It combines the group's early singles hits like "Paper Sun" and "Hole in My Shoe" with lengthier album tracks like "Dear Mr. Fantasy" and "The Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys." Looking over the song list, any Traffic fan will be able to reel off omissions. But easy as it is to note what's missing, it's not so easy to figure out how such songs could be shoehorned into a single-disc set that is already packed with great material. Except in its first year in England, Traffic was not a band that made hit singles, but it did make a plethora of strong recordings, many of which were lengthy by the standards of the time. Several of the absolute necessities on a collection of their best work run longer than five minutes each; "The Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys" runs close to 12 minutes. Beyond those absolute musts are a bunch of other good songs, many more than could fit on one CD. Compilation producer Bill Levenson has made a reasonable choice among them to construct a well-balanced disc that shows off the band's many talents. Neophytes with a few extra dollars to spend are strongly urged to take the plunge and buy Smiling Phases, but as a one-CD collection of some of the highlights of Traffic's career, this album lives up to its title.

Every song on here is distinctive and amazing. I recently purchased this album b/c my dad was bemoaning the infrequent radio airplay of Traffic, telling me about how great a band it was (I'm 15). I went to the iTunes page and played the samples of a few songs, all of which I liked, so I decided to buy this best of album. After listening to it about three times, I realized that I love every single song. That is not an exaggeration. This album is incredible and addictive--it's probably my favorite album. I can listen to it over and over and not get bored with it. You need to buy this album, and if you like other classic rock, you will undoubtedly like this.
I first heard Traffic in the early 70's, listening to John Barleycorn Must Die and trying to follow along on my saxaphone. I then realized I really couldn't play the saxaphone. Now, some 30 years later, Traffic is amazingly refreshing. Fantastic musicianship, fun to listen to. But, I'm still trying to figure out what "Low Spark of High heeled Boys" means.
I haven't listened to my Traffic albums for untold years, simply because they are on vinyl and my old turntable hasn't been connected to the sound system for years. But, BANG!, as soon as I plugged in to this album all the words and tunes were back in my head. As a previous review stated, it was like being back in my fraternity room at college in 1970. If you have forgotten just how good Traffic is, or even more so, if you've never listened to Traffic, this album is for you!
