Another Blast From The Past

My apologies to those that look forward to this feature, for not getting this up sooner in the weekend. Unfortunately, personal and family issues must get attention before a non-revenue generating hobby.

Last week, PYY featured the most successful of the Traffic alumni, Steve Winwood. This week we look at two others. While they were less successful in their solo ventures (in record sales), their music and songs were certainly no less artistic and creative.

Dave Mason had a couple of songs that got some airplay back in the late 70s, one was a hit and has since become a staple of the Adult Contemporary radio format. You might remember it, here is We Just Disagree:



The other song that was not a hit, but got some good rotation on album rock stations all over. Here is what I think is the best Dave Mason song ever, Mystic Traveler:



The other lesser known member of Traffic that had a hit as a solo artist was the late Jim Capaldi. Here is a catchy little tune that got some airplay, Livin' On The Edge:



Enjoy
