“Mr. Fantasy” by Traffic - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1967Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

My 22 track compile has the UK album (tracks 1-10) then the US version (11-22). The US would’ve scored slightly better (5.86) as it featured the UK singles “Paper Sun” and “Hole In My Shoe”. However, the first-to-market (and therefore proper A-list) UK version has a great track “Utterly Simple” which the US doesn’t. All in all, this is a crazy mix of styles - everything from “Theme From Rainbow” style hippy folk to bluesy Doorsy style to proper sitar hippy style to hippy rock.
