Traffic: John Barleycorn Must Die (Island stereo ILPS 9116; 39s 11d)

Richard Green, New Musical Express, 1 August 1970

THE FIRST Traffic album for far too long consists of a mere six tracks. This is not a bad thing though because each one is fairly lengthy and given enough space in which to develop and draw to a natural conclusion.

Total word count of piece: 439
