Traffic- Far from Home 25th Anniversary- Steve Winwood, the late Jim Capaldi

Twenty-five years ago it was my great honor to host the first new Traffic album in twenty years, Far from Home by Steve Winwood and Jim Capaldi...

Traffic- John Barleycorn Must Die- 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.
