Deutsch: "Traffic" mit Steve Winwood...

Traffic in Hamburg, 1973 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

There once was some Traffic that flowed in a wonderful way.  It was psychedelic.  It was harmonic.  At times, it had some serious bite to it.  It could be jazzy, and when it did this Traffic jammed in a very good way.

This was the Traffic mainly featuring Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi, Chris Wood, and Dave Mason, although there were a few shifts in the faces along the way before this Traffic went away for good.

There was a time when Traffic came to a halt, and its main voice went on a brief journey toward Blind Faith.  But when that journey ended, the voice came back and Traffic just kept right on truckin’ for a while longer, before stopping for good in 1994.

Traffic was a good thing.  It was a very good thing.

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that puts us back into the "middle class." I won't stop blogging, though. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
