Traffic 1974

This show was at Ohio State's St John's Arena in Columbus. We had decent floor seats. Traffic was formed to be a band completely about music - commerciality be damned. This tour was promoting the album, When the Eagle Flies, that sounded a lot like a dirge and was their last real album. The songs from the album, played alongside their older music didn't sound as depressing. I remember thinking that they should scrap that album & re-record it live. Overall it was a good show with Winwood primarily on keyboards but also rocking out on guitar. I am not sure there is a live version of Dear Mr Fantasy I don't like.
