Radio Mans fave with Traffic


Feelin’ Alright

Traffic were an English rock band formed in Birmingham[4] in April 1967 by Steve WinwoodJim CapaldiChris Wood and Dave Mason.[5] They began as a psychedelic rock group and diversified their sound through the use of instruments such as keyboards (such as the Mellotron and harpsichord), sitar, and various reed instruments, and by incorporating jazz and improvisational techniques in their music.[5]

The band had early success in the UK with their debut album Mr. Fantasy and non-album singles “Paper Sun“, “Hole in My Shoe“, and “Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush.” [4] Their follow-up self-titled 1968 album was their most successful in Britain and featured one of their most popular songs, the widely covered “Feelin’ Alright?” Dave Mason left the band shortly after the album’s release, as did Steve Winwood the following year when he joined the supergroup Blind Faith, and Traffic effectively disbanded. An album compiled from studio and live recordings, Last Exit, was released in 1969.
