In 1967 Steve Winwood decided to leave the Spencer Davis Group - with whom he had enjoyed considerable worldwide success - and form his own band. The result was Traffic. This new multi-talented group gained international success in the late 1960s and early 1970s, particularly in the USA where they attracted a large following. In Britain, they are remembered mostly for some memorable and ground-breaking singles and albums that scored high chart placings during the late 1960s and early 1970s. It is without doubt fortunate that Island and Columbia filmed Traffic at the 3000-seat Santa Monica Civic Auditorium in 1972, when the band had just released their definitive album John Barleycorn Must Die. A beautifully shot concert film, there are endless camera angles and close-ups of performers from virtually every perspective imaginable - with great shots of band members Steve Winwood, Chris White, Rebop Kwakubaah and Jim Capaldi. An absolute classic for the first time on DVD! Songs: The Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys · Light Up or Leave Me Alone · John Barleycorn · Rainmaker · Freedom Rider · 40,000 Headman · Dear Mr. Fantasy. 1 hour, 4 minutes.
