Traffic - John Barleycorn Must Die LP
Steve Winwood may be one of my favorite classic rock vocalists. His solo albums have never connected with me as much as his work with Blind Faith and Traffic but the voice remains equally strong over all of those options. Align him with a team that is ready to melt down and he can deliver some truly iconic musicianship across various instruments and put the icing on the cake with his vocal ability. One of my favorite things about this record is the opening track, landing at seven minutes, is entirely instrumental and requires the listener to commit to the progressive rock structure before introducing the blues based rock elements that are so easily incorporated later.
