    Superb album. My favourite traffic album is on the road. I've got the American import CD which is far superior sound to the very flat sounding UK release
    Traffic were truly outstanding when they played their long spaced out jazz rock tracks with the dreamy Chris Woods on amplified sax. Very similar to xhol Low spark is a nice album

    I enjoy it.
    It's less "folk" than JBMD. More psychodelic.
    More like shootout.

    Love the War reference.
    I listened to The World is A Ghetto on my ride into work this morning coincidentally.
    I've been digging the War / Santana brand of tunes lately.
    We listened to Santana live from 1970 at camp the other night by the fire and it was perfect for the occasion. Beers and shooting the shit with that in the background was nice.
    It got me off on a kick.



    Both are great.
