Remastered from the original tapes

Limited time album download included

After a brief disbandment Traffic returned in Summer of 1970 with John Barleycorn Must Die, hitting No 5 on the U.S. Billboard Chart and thus making it their highest ever peak position in the U.S.. John Barleycorn would take the band's jazz/rock leanings beyond mere jamming and give Winwood excuse to exercise his expressive voice as punctuation to the extended instrumental sections. Remastered from the original tapes, pressed on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl and artwork caringly overseen and interpreted.

This european pressing from the master tapes is crisp but full in the bottom end. The original version was slightly muddy but the remaster from the original tapes is full of detail. The packaging is one star below because the original was a fold out with the superb centre colour image and also was more like a real cardboard texture. This time there is no fold-out but the centre picture is provided as a poster. Very impressed by how quiet this pressing was.
