Traffic- Mr Fantasy- Steve Winwood, the late Jim Capaldi

Traffic albums “Mr Fantasy”, “Traffic”, and “John Barleycorn Must Die” included former Spencer Davis Group teen prodigy singer/organist/guitarist Steve Winwood, reed man Chris Wood, and drummer Jim Capaldi. Guitarist/singer Dave Mason, a former Spencer Davis roadie, shared a talent for  melody with the other three on the first two Traffic albums, but little else personality-wise, and was cut loose for the second and final time before the second album hit store shelves. Steve Winwood & the late Jim Capaldi joined me In the Studio.
