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.
