4 stars My first Traffic album and what I can realize here, is that this a mix of jazz, folk, rock, and percussions fitting very very well in all the songs, giving a different touch to its sound. This is not a noisy record but a very well played and sometimes complicated sometimes relaxing. For example "rock & roll stew", seems like a reggae song at the introduction, and all the song (whole album) has a swing. This is a very good taste album, not easy at the first listening cause the jazz influence, amazing guitars (Steve Winwood) solos, did you realize guitar those times had another function than nowadays, it wasn't noisy but played with intelligence, guitar has a metal sound that can be very boring if not well played. Amazing work of piano and organ (S. Winwood), amazing drums (Jim Gordon), pleasant flute and sax (Chris Wood) and Mr. Jim Capaldi vocals, percussions, songwriting, left this earth to seek the space for new sounds, Reebop k. Baah, percussions, Rick Grech on bass. É difícil de acreditar que caras como G. harrison e J. Capaldi regravaram os otários, babacas, sem talento, metidos a intelectuais dos los hermanos.
