3 stars Dave who?

By the time Mr. Fantasy was released in the UK in late 1967, Dave Mason had already left the band (for the first time). In was some time later that a US release for the album was to come about. The band therefore decided to reflect their current situation as a trio, erasing Mason from the album credits.

For its US release, the album was initially re-titled Heaven is in your mind, and two of Mason's three songs were removed. This conveniently made way for the inclusion of three songs which had already been hit singles for Traffic in the UK. One of these, Hole in my shoe, was in fact a Mason composition. The whimsical nature of the song lead to the rest of the band recording it under protest, but Mason enjoyed a told you so moment when it became a huge hit.

The differences between the UK and US versions were not however purely the result of political intrigue. There was a tendency in the UK for singles not to appear on album around this time, while US record buyers were less prone to acquiring singles and therefore expected to hear such songs on a band's albums.

The rearrangement and substitution of the songs for this version is significant in terms of the balance and atmosphere of the album. Whereas the UK release had a generally serious, proto-prog feel (although for obvious reasons that term would not have been used at the time), the US album has a much lighter, psychedelic pop atmosphere. This is not simply down to the inclusion of Hole in my shoe. The other singles, Paper sun and Smiling phases, also had a pop feel to them. When this is combined with the occasional lighter moments on the original album such as Berkshire poppies, this becomes a much more accessible album overall.

For me, while this is a highly enjoyable listen, the pioneering spirit which prevails on the UK Mr. Fantasy is slightly diluted here. That said, tracks such as Heaven is in your mind and Giving it to you are still very much an integral part of this release.

At the end of the day, you pays your money and you takes your choice. Both versions are currently available together on a single CD on the Island remasters version of Mr Fantasy.

3 stars Heaven is in Your Mind is the US version of the debut full-length studio album by UK progressive rock act Trafficīs. The UK version is titled Mr. Fantasy. The tracklists on the two versions differ a lot from each other. Heaven is in Your Mind include three tracks that donīt appear on Mr. Fantasy and the the rest of the tracks have a different order from the UK version too. Personally I prefer the tracklist on the UK version but Heaven is in Your Mind is enjoyable too. The mono version which is the one I have heard doesnīt have a sound that I enjoy much though and thatīs my main reason for taking one star off my rating. 3 stars are deserved but I recommend getting the UK stereo version which is an excellent release.
