3 stars 72,11 mins of Traffic, from 1968 to 1971, passing through John Barleycorn (Must Die) and Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys. This is the best period for this group, but in a so large compilation they could fit some other material of the next albums.

4 stars REALLY: 3,73

This CD contains the songs of the better period of Traffic. They have a well blended combination of blues, jazz, folk and prog, capable of being cold, yet exciting. On tracks such as "Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys", "Hole In My Shoe" (an excellent song for children), "Dear Mr Fantasy", "John Baleycorn Must Die", "Medicated Goo" and "Paper Sun", the songs are still fresh and alive today. It stays a compilation... but what a compilation!
