iTunes Review

The lukewarm reviews that greeted this 1973 release seem almost perfunctory now because time has been good to this album. There’s a dusky groove throughout that often sounds the way hammocks feel at twilight in summer: gentle and unassuming. The breathy sax and organ of the 11-minute “Roll Right Stones” pull you in and gently rock; “Evening Blue” is an afternoon’s expanding shadow, and the finale, “(Sometimes I Feel So) Uninspired,” glows like the third beer into the evening. The album features the Muscle Shoals house-band rhythm section, alongside the band’s leaders (and album producers) Jim Capaldi and Steve Winwood.

A Little Carried Away, Wouldn't You Say ???

As stated by a previous reviewer (Seven City Blues) - This album is not for everyone. And although I appreciate Traffic greatly, I also appreciate being frugal with my hard earned money. "Roll Right Stones" is NOT worthy of the $6.03 pricetag iTunes charges for it's infamous "Album Only" offering. There's no valid justification in gouging customers like that for an album that comprises of only five selections, four of which are only .99 cents each. Do the math. Apple and iTunes certainly haven't.

The "Shootout at the Fantasy Factory" experiment

This album, in it's artistic scope, is flat out great. Everything from the album art to the jam session melodies speaks of the artistic experiment. I think the album art is the best ever. I like Traffic a lot. But I bought this album on the album art alone. And then after I listened to the album a few times, I was not disappointed with what my imagination was thinking was inside musically. The musical experiment going on inside matches the geometry and floating bodies and wide open spaces and flailing limbs. The colors chosen match the bluesy, veiled, dark, compelling instrumentation and lyrics. This is for sure one of my favorite albums because of the creativity and complex melodies pushing the envelope. If you love art it is well worth the purchase of the entire album.

A sound most fragrant

A whimsical sound, mix in with, reverbing bass sounds, and expermental jazz. A dash of new age with a pinch of, rock, and you have you're self, a album of the madman.

Biography

Formed: 1967 in Midlands, England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s

Though it ultimately must be considered an interim vehicle for singer/songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Steve Winwood, Traffic was a successful group that followed its own individual course through the rock music scene of the late '60s and early '70s. Beginning in the psychedelic year of 1967 and influenced by the Beatles, the band turned out eclectic pop singles in its native Great Britain, though by the end of its first year of existence it had developed a pop/rock hybrid tied to its unusual instrumentation:...
