When Traffic announced their breakup in '69, Island assembled this LP from cuts they'd recorded but not issued. An unexpected gem resulted, and a #19 LP in the U.S.; includes Just for You; Feeling Good; Withering Tree; Blind Man , and more!

5.0 out of 5 stars "We are not like all the rest..." July 24, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Traffic had one of the most original (and interesting) sounds in British rock, and not only because of their eclectic musical influences, which embraced psychedelia, folk, jazz, soul, R&B, and even classical. Their unique sound was also the result of their unusual instrumentation. While the group went through a number of personnel changes, its constant core members were Steve Winwood (vocals, keyboards, guitars), Chris Wood (sax, flute, and organ), and Jim Capaldi (drums & percussion). With no regular bass player, Winwood often filled in with the bass pedals on his organ. And, while there is no lack of guitars on most Traffic recordings, the guitar is not emphasized or particularly important to the group's sound. Dave Mason came and went in their early years and, on other recordings, Steve Winwood would switch to guitar, with Chris Wood taking over organ duties. In short, Traffic was anything but your typical guitar-bass-drums rock outfit. And, with "white Ray Charles" prodigy Winwood at the helm, and with their willingness to experiment with virtually any sound or musical style, they cut some of the most distinctive and important records in British rock.
"Last Exit," their third full-length release, is actually a record-company creation. With Dave Mason gone and the band temporarily disbanded (while Winwood joined Eric Clapton in Blind Faith), Island Records cobbled this LP together from tracks that didn't make it onto Traffic's earlier albums, along with two extended live jams ("Feelin' Good" and "Blind Man" - neither of which was ever recorded in the studio). The result, while not as cohesive as Traffic's other releases, is nonetheless exceptionally strong.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mason`s Last Traffic Album June 14, 2004
Format:Audio CD
"Last Exit" was originally thought as a farewell album from Traffic, as the band had split just prior to its release. Later when Steve Winwood was working on his first album, both Chris Wood and Jim Capaldi helped backing him, so eventually it turned out to be a new Traffic album; and Traffic was reborn. This time without Dave Mason, who had already been walking in and out of the band several times.
Dave is only partly present on this album. "Medicated Goo" and "Shanghai Noodle Factory" was recorded late 1968 without Mason. The 2 live tracks "Feeling Good" and "Blind Man" are also Winwood, Capaldi and Wood alone.
"Just For You" is more or less Mason solo. "Withering Tree" had already been released a B-side. The instrumental "Something`s Got a Hold on My Toe" is probably a studio outtake from the sessions for their second album.
As for the music; The new songs "Medicated Goo" and "Shanghai Noodle Factory" are great . "Withering Tree" and "Just For You" are classic Traffic. The live-tracks are interesting, but the sound is not so good as could be wished for. The instrumental "Something`s Got a Hold on My Toe" has probably just been included to add to the playing time.
I would have preferred some more singles-tracks like "Paper Sun", "Hole in My Shoe", "Coloured Rain", "Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush" and "Am I What I was, or Am I What I Am". This would have made the album much better, and the album could have completed the first era of a great band.

4.0 out of 5 stars live traffic at it's best! January 3, 2007
By Jay
Format:Audio CD
as we who provide comments here should all know, what we appreciate is subjective. having said that, and having had the chance to see the original and a subsequent incarnation of traffic, blind man and feelin' good are as good as traffic ever was. this is stevie winwood's soul at it's best. if you don't dig this, fuhgeddabout it! four stars because some of the studio stuff is so so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Overlooked Album April 28, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is the type of late-sixties album that reinforces the argument that the Muse was so abundant in that era, that even overlooked stuff sounds better-conceived than any pop-rock offering today. I grew up with this album. I was only five years old when it was released, but I had parents with hip musical tastes, and I heard it constantly for a month or two in late 1969. So maybe it simply hit me at an imprintable age, but I do think it stands the test of time. I'm surprised that it doesn't surface more often as one of their more noteworthy albums. Frankly, as an album I think it's as good-- in some ways better --than John Barleycorn or Low Spark. The first side is a collection of really excellent 3-minute pop selections, each of which could've been hits (again, it had much steeper competition back then). Stevie Winwood-- who was only 1ike 18 or 19 --sounds perhaps better than ever, the music is psychedelic yet very tight, and the musicianship is first-rate. Every single song represents dynamic, well-crafted pop, with extremely strong melodies that you'll instantly process and always remember. (And I love the acoustic guitar work in "Shanghai Noodle Factory"). And the second side is not bad-- far from it. Actually, "Feelin' Good" is a wonderful live performance that should be considered a classic. You gotta love that raw Hammond B3 organ sound (or is it an early Mellotron or Moog synth?). Winwood is as bluesy as he can be. The song is very hippie, funky, improvisational, and has great atmosphere. The riff sounds like a hybrid of church organ and minor blues-- and it works. As far as "Blind Man," well it's not as strong as "Feelin' Good," but it's alright. All in all, if you're interested in Traffic, this one's a keeper.
