Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Remastered. Reissue. Includes 12 page booklet with photos.
  • Personnel: Dave Mason (vocals, guitar, sitar, tamboura, Mellotron, bass guitar); Steve Winwood (vocals, guitar, piano, harpsichord, organ, bass guitar, percussion); Chris Wood (vocals, flute, saxophone, organ); Jim Capaldi (vocals, drums, percussion).
  • Recording information: Olympic Sound Studios.
  • Rehearsed and written at a cottage in the Berkshire countryside, Traffic's debut was former child prodigy Steve Winwood's first foray into headier territory after a stint playing R&B-fueled rock & roll with the Spencer Davis Group. Rounded out by drummer Jim Capaldi and multi-instrumentalists Chris Wood and Dave Mason, MR. FANTASY included experimentation with vaudeville-inspired numbers ("Berkshire Poppies"), flamenco-flavored fantasy ("Dealer"), and sitar-drenched meditations ("Utterly Simple"). Winwood's inspired organ playing and soulful singing emerge on cuts like "Coloured Rain." In keeping with the band's unorthodox approach to composition and arrangement, "Giving To You" offers a funky groove sandwiched between tidbits of an overheard conversation about the relative merits of jazz.
Professional Reviews
Q (2/00, p.104) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...embodies the mores of hippy-era British rock....heavy on pastoral whimsy..."

Mojo (Publisher) (1/00, p.106) - "...a riot of trendy hippy-pop....shows that Traffic were capable of thoughtful, inventive and occasionally very beautiful music."
