Complete your Traffic collection. This track alone is worth the price of admission, however, the entire album is a solid spin. Over 40 minutes worth of music divided by a mere 4 tracks. Reply Notify me 1 Helpful.
Traffic – On The Road. Label: Island Records – SMAS-9336. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album, Misprint, Jacksonville Pressing, Gatefold. In my opinion, the 10:45 "Light Up or Leave Me Alone" is Traffic at the top of their game every second of the track.
This "On the Road" album was recorded by this line-up which now included Barry Beckett, in Germany, in 1973. IMO, this is the best live album that Traffic recorded. This line- up is very good, better, IMO, than the 1971 line-up which recorded the "Welcome to the Canteen" and "The Low Spark of High- Heeled Boys" albums. The Muscle Shoals musicians are very good, sounding with a lot of experience to follow improvisations without problems. Just two years after "Welcome to the canteen", Traffic released "On the road", another live album. The time gap between the albums may be relatively short, but in the interim the band had released two studio albums which represented a major shift in their direction.
