Traffic / Best of Traffic (Import)
Island Records ILPS-9112 (1970)(UK) Import issue Record. Though Traffic broke up at the start of 1969, the band was on a commercial
ascent, which led Island Records (their U.K. label) and United Artists (which licensed their product for the U.S.) to assemble a selection
of the best and most popular material from the group's first three albums. The U.K. hit singles, "Paper Sun" and "Hole in My Shoe," were
already sounding like quaint bits of psychedelia by 1969, and the entire second side of the LP, with "Medicated Goo," "Forty Thousand
Headmen," "Feelin' Alright," "Shanghai Noodle Factory" and "Dear Mr. Fantasy," were the kind of progressive rock that would define Traffic
and give them their place in the rock pantheon. The Record and Cover are in great (Very Good++) condition...$15.00

Traffic / Best of Traffic
United Artists Records UAS-5504 (1970)(US) Second issue Record. Though Traffic broke up at the start of 1969, the band was on a commercial
ascent, which led Island Records (their U.K. label) and United Artists (which licensed their product for the U.S.) to assemble a selection
of the best and most popular material from the group's first three albums. The American version included "You Can All Join In,"
which replaced "Smiling Phases" (available on UK pressings). The Record (brown label) and Cover are in great (Very Good++) condition...$10.00



Traffic / John Barleycorn Must Die (Sold Out)
United Artists Records UAS-5504 (1970)(US) Second issue Record. At only 22 years old, Steve Winwood sat down in early 1970 to fulfill
a contractual commitment by making his first solo album, on which he intended to play all the instruments himself. The record got as far as
one backing track produced by Guy Stevens, "Stranger to Himself," before Winwood called his erstwhile partner from Traffic, Jim Capaldi,
in to help out. The two completed a second track, "Every Mother's Son," then, with Winwood and Island Records chief Chris Blackwell
moving to the production chores, brought in a third Traffic member, Chris Wood, to work on the sessions.
The Record (brown label) and Gatefold Cover (in shrinkwrap) are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$15.00 (SOLD 08/08)

Traffic / Welcome To The Canteen
United Artists Records UAS-5550 (1971)(US) Original issue Record. "Welcome to the Canteen" proved how good a contractual obligation
album could be (one last album was necessary to satisfy the terms of British label Island records' licensing deal with American label
United Artists). Sound quality is not the best, with the vocals under-recorded and stray sounds honing in, but the playing is exemplary,
and the set list is an excellent mixture of old Traffic songs and recent Dave Mason favorites. Dear Mr. Fantasy gets an extended
workout, and the closer is a rearranged version of Steve Winwood's old Spencer Davis Group hit Gimme Some Lovin'.
The Record (brown label) and Cover are in excellent (Very Good++ to Mint-) condition...$10.00

Traffic / The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys (Sold Out)
Island Records SW-9306 (1971)(US) Original issue Record. "The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys" was one of Traffic's greatest songs (and albums)
as well as its longest so far. The result was an album that quickly went gold (and eventually platinum) in the U.S., where the group toured
frequently and had now established themselves in music. The Record and Cover are in great (Very Good++) condition...$15.00 (SOLD 08/08)

Steve Winwood Traffic Shoot Out At The Fantasy Factory lp Jim Capaldi Chris Wood
Traffic / Shoot Out At The Fantasy Factory (Sold Out)
Island Records SW-9323 (1973)(US) Original issue Record. On "Shoot Out at the Fantasy Factory" lyricist Jim Capaldi was co-credited with
Steve Winwood as the album's producer (contributing to the cleaner mix that made his words easier to understand). Also, the rhythm section
had been replaced by Muscle Shoals studio aces David Hood and Roger Hawkins. The album was a commercial success but not their best to date.
The Record and custom-cut Cover are in great (Very Good++ to Mint-) condition...$15.00 (SOLD 08/08)



Traffic / When The Eagle Flies
Asylum Records 7E-1020 (1974)(US) Original Issue Record. Although "When The Eagle Flies" became Traffic's fourth consecutive studio album
to reach the Top Ten and go gold in the U.S., the group broke up following the American promotional tour in the fall of 1974. Traffic displayed
an affection for jazz-like improvisation over shuffling rhythms, and that tendency was never more indulged than on this release.
The Record and Cover are in great (Very Good++ to Mint-) condition...$10.00



Traffic / More Heavy Traffic
United Artists Records UA-LA526-G (1975)(US) Limited edition Record on U.S. vinyl. After the compilation "Heavy Traffic" sold well enough
to chart, their label United Artists quickly assembled a second volume from Traffic's first five albums, this time-favoring lesser songs
from the group's second, self-titled album, with six of ten tracks originating there. Also included were the live version of Gimme Some Lovin'
from "Welcome to the Canteen" and the popular John Barleycorn from "John Barleycorn Must Die".
The Record (brown label) and Cover are in great (Very Good++ to Mint-) condition...$10.00
