5.0 out of 5 stars 2 CDs of Traffic at its best March 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This samples from everything Traffic recorded up until 1974 including a few live cuts ("Gimme Some Loving"). If you like the band, all areas of that time period are included including some of the lengthier album songs. It's hard to argue with the song selection and the CDs are a good length as well.
One note: the 1994 reunion of Steve Winwood and Jim Capaldi is not included. A number of these Gold releases exclude the more recent material and focus on the older songs and that is the case here.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best representation of Traffic December 17, 2005
By Morton
Format:Audio CD
Gold is the best representation of the best of Traffic out there. It has everything you could ever want from Traffic. I mean really this covers their whole carear. From 'Dear Mr. Fantasy' to 'The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys.'

'Rock And Roll Stew' 'Rain Maker' 'Dealer' there all here. Traffics hard rock edge, their drug induced psycadelia, their amazing folk rock, I.E. 'John Barlie Corn Must Die.' The masterfull musician ship of Steve Winnwood is presented here perfectly.

So while most best ofs are terrible, and mainly these Gold collections are really bad this one is one that everybody should have in their collection!

4.0 out of 5 stars The best Traffic hits collection out there December 9, 2006
Format:Audio CD
There are quite a few Traffic greatest hits/best of collections out there. They can be useful for turning new fans on who aren't really familiar with the band or artist if they're put together well. This one covers the most ground and has the best sound quality. Don't bother with the other "hits" cds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, almost November 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD
A great all-round selection of Traffic's music. All but 3 of the first album tracks are there and a generous selection from other albums. And it's remastered, and as with all "Gold" releases, the tracks are in chronological order with info on the particular albums they came from.

Greatest Hits albums are really great though when they include rare tracks previously only available as singles - it's a pity the wonderful "Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush" wasn't included here. You have to buy the first album remaster to get that, and consequently double up on 8 tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprise, surprise! July 20, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been listening to Traffic since '67 and have owned every concoction that's been released over the years, including the Winwood box set, but this release beats them all. I've had several of the Gold series, and they've been servable greatest compilations, but for whatever reason, this item rises above the average. The mixes are extremely clear and am able to actually understand many of Winwood's vocals that I've always had trouble understanding. The discs offer a nice balance of cuts from Dear Mr. Fantasy thru When The Eagle Flies. The only disc that gets shorted is Last Exit which I understand was a record company compilation. The discs each clock in at 80 min! OMG! Someone finally used the entire disc lengths. Plus, there is a thick booklet with pics, detailed track listings, and an informative essay in which I actually learned things I didn't already know. Instead of going on about the Summer of Love, the essayist chronicles the many incarnations of the band. Buy with confidence. I saw the one negative review about manufacturing defects but that can happen on any release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Band of Gold October 17, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I had heard the usual "hit" tracks by Traffic over the years/decades, but I wanted to wade in deeper and get a better feel for the band's overall sound. This excellent 2-CD collection did the trick. The songs on here show the wide range of material that this band played, from R&B influenced tunes and uptempo rock to more jazz influenced pieces. Traffic was a group of truly outstanding musicians; Steve Winwood and Dave Mason, plus drummer Jim Capaldi and the others. I guess with the personalities involved --- and the urge by Winwood and Mason to persue solo careers --- it was inevitable that they would split up, but they left behind some truly memorable music, some of the best of the early 70s. This double disc set is attractively priced and loaded with tunes; a perfect introduction to the mesmerizing music of Traffic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Traffic Gold IS February 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of Traffic and Steve Winwood and Dave Mason for a long time and have been looking for this collection for a while. Its everything you could want from Traffic and then some. A good "sister disc" for Steve Winwood fans is the double cd live at Madison Square Garden with Eric Clapton.

4.0 out of 5 stars Trafffic Gold November 9, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a solid collection. For real afficianados, some great songs are missing though, meaning you need to have copies of a few albums like "Traffic" and "Mr. Fantasy". Most of the best are on this CD though.

This may sound strange but Traffic sometimes reminds me of The Grateful Dead. If you just give them a casual listen they may sound loose and maybe even a little sloppy. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad discs
I recieved two of these and both had flaws in them. Music is great but the discs were bad. A bad run because the flaws were in the same spots so I will try another time.
