I listen to Traffic albums A LOT.

It strikes me that nothing that came after has the effortless blend of voices and talent that this one does.

No one's fault. But a bit of a shame nonetheless.

Coloured Rain, one of the all time great Traffic tracks. Steve’s vocals are inspirational and that dirty sax from Chris. Oer Mrs.

Nothing seems the same
Still you never see the change from day to day
And no-one notices the customs slip away
