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.

Not always considered a Progressive Rock band, nevertheless the title song to Traffic's most popular album, November 1971's "Low Spark of High Heeled Boys" fits easily high atop any list of the most popular and creative songs of the Progressive Rock era..In my classic rock interview In the Studio prior to Jim Capaldi's death in 2005 from cancer, it is clearly evident how much Steve Winwood and Capaldi loved woodwind player ChrisWood, and each other.

When I sat down In the Studio in Autumn 1990 with Steve Winwood to talk about his then new release "Refugees of the Heart" , he had already established himself with the breakthrough album "Arc of a Dive"r ten years prior, then midway in between released "Back in the High Life", one of the biggest albums commercially as well as critically, and "Roll With It", in the Eighties.
