Traffic is cool. John Barleycorn Must Die is an awesome album.

wow, i'm surprised this was the only thread on these guys


but yeah, i just got John Barleycorn Must Die, along with The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys, listening to the latter atm, and i really love their instrumentation and song structure. also the atmospheric feel of their music isn't one to be taken lightly.


Glad is one of my favorite songs right now

They are an acquired taste. I'm still working on acquiring it, honestly. I have Mr. Fantasy (only played once so far), John Barleycorn Must Die, and The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys.

One of the best jazz-rock groups of all time.

Steve Winwood has such an original refreshing voice and its really quite high for a man. I too, love Dear Mr. Fantasy and it is my favorite of theirs. Those big deep guitar notes thrown in with Steve's high voice just mingle together perfectly.

Traffic self-titled is also unbelievably good. Pearly Queen is my favorite. If you like them, are you into Blind Faith?

They tend to get overlooked, but Winwood was a great vocalist and organ player, and Chris Wood provided some of the best flute parts this side of Tull. Feelin Alright, 40 Thousand Headmen, Medicated Goo, Rainmaker are some their many cool songs.
