This is uncharted territory for me - I know the name & have have heard Feelin' Alright, but more commonly by others.





This is starting in a rather Delaney & Bonnie vibe, most pleasant.


cheers and salutations!

i think you will enjoy this album. it's so melodic and well-played and all

Ah, no wonder there's a D & B feel. Stellar choice of drummers.

Indeed and hello JJ.

I only saw Dave Mason, solo, once.

A really enjoyable gig (Hammersmith Odeon) circa 1972

Now one of my two favorite songs on the album. Both excellent here, both surpassed in the live versions on Traffic's Live at the Canteen album, which needs to be expanded to a double album, remixed by Steven Wilson into 5.1 and carved into the Mount Rushmore of musical achievement.

Absolutely - Canteen is a great album and there must be more material from that Oz Benefit
