It is a very good album, just rather different to what came before.



This is a great starting point for anyone wanting to sample Traffic.

Thats a superb collection. My starting point. Would be even better with Graveyard People added but that aside superb.


I agree wholeheartedly - it's a very good 2 disc collection.
Not quite my starting point, but it helped to rekindle my interest in the band and encouraged me to plug a few more of the gaps in my Traffic section.
It was very cheap in an Our Price sale (which always helped) and also included the standalone single "Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush" from the film of the same name (which I hadn't previously acquired).
I seem to remember that, at the time of purchase in the mid-90s, the film had recently been shown on late-night ITV, but can't remember much about the film now other than it featured tracks by both Traffic and The Spencer Davis Group, and also included the rather lovely Judy Geeson :)

Man, what a lovely album this is: funky, and yet laid back at the same time.

Very sunny, warm music, that places me firmly back in my own early 1970s roots.

Cheers, C.

Is it too soon for me to trot out my usual recommendation of Steve’s excellent About Time album?
