Editorial Reviews

2008 release of this unreleased album by the late Chris Wood, founder member of the legendary Traffic and flautist and saxophonist extraordinaire. Recorded just after the demise of Traffic in 1974, Vulcan was begun for Island records but shelved in 1978. The sessions featured contributions from Steve Winwood and members of the Wailers, along with a live recording of Traffic performing the title track in 1974, but due to a change in musical fashion with the advent of Punk, the album failed to see the light of day. Island boss Chris Blackwell returned the tapes to Chris Wood in the late 1970's. Following Chris' untimely death in 1983 the tapes were passed on to his sister, Stephanie. Now, 25 years later, and after three years of research and preparation, Esoteric have pieced together the sessions in co-operation with Stephanie Wood to bring you this release.

Format: Audio CD
First, let's get one thing straight: This is not really an unreleased solo album by former Traffic member Chris Wood. Rather, this is a collection of material that Wood (who died in 1983 at age 39) recorded in the process of *trying* to make a solo album. And while some of this material would certainly have appeared on such an album had it been made, said album never came close to being finished. (The Product Description given is undoubtedly incorrect or misleading in other ways as well, but I won't concern myself with that.)

Wood managed to have too much, and yet not enough, material for his proposed album -- too much, because all his potential song ideas wouldn't have fit on one LP; not enough, because few of the songs could really be said to have been finished. He himself never seems to have been sure just what pieces he would have included.

This disc doesn't include all the material that Wood worked on for his proposed album. Tapes have been floating around for years that include at least a few other songs besides those heard here. I've heard a couple of the missing tracks and, besides so-so but salvageable sound quality, I'm not sure why they would have been excluded; I believe others were redundant or had poor performance quality. But the eight tracks remaining (not counting a bonus track of Traffic performing one of Wood's songs live in '74) still add up to a good 49 minutes, and with one minor exception ("Sullen Moon") all are presented here with quite good sound quality.

(BTW, the CD package doesn't tell you this, but the Traffic performance features a transitional 5-man lineup from whom no other recordings have been released -- namely, the WHEN THE EAGLE FLIES lineup plus the soon-to-be-dismissed "Reebop" Kwaku Baah.

Chris Wood was musician. His skills are greatly missed. This is apparently the only chance to listen to his own projects. Some of the pieces are just that, pieces of music, but interesting none the less. Let us hope for live releases of Traffic in the future.
