Speaks his mind on music & movies!
I heard this song when I was a kid. My brother had The Best Of Traffic album and I used to sneak listen to this when he wasn’t around. I’ve been listening to this groove ever since just about as long as I’ve been alive. This song is just really good. I could sing these lyrics in my sleep and probably do.
Dave Mason on lead vocals with Steve Winwood backing him up. The song starts slow then builds as the band gets into it. The piano riff does it for me but it’s Chris Woods sax that puts the cherry on it. What great music to be exposed to as a kid. I could listen to a 20 minute jam on this baby. Oh yeah Jim Capaldi’s drums and percussion are a big part of it.
Traffic is a CB favorite band. I started early with their music and this song was one of the reasons I got caught up with it. What a good band what a cool song.
(We all know Joe Cocker did a killer cover also)
