Traffic’s second studio album, titled “Traffic,” was released in 1968 on Island Records in the UK and United Artists in the US. It marked a departure from the psychedelia of their debut album “Mr. Fantasy.” Following initial success, Dave Mason had left the group, and upon invitation, returned in May 1968 to contribute to the new album.

The album showcased a more eclectic mix of influences, ranging from blues and folk to jazz. Mason, who wrote and sang half of the songs, including the hit “Feelin’ Alright?,” had a pop-oriented style that contrasted with the jazz ambitions of Jim Capaldi and Steve Winwood. This dichotomy contributed to Mason leaving the band again by October 1968.

“Traffic” is recognized for its diverse musical styles and influences. In the UK, it peaked at number 9 on the Albums Chart, while in the US, it reached number 17 on the Billboard Top LPs chart. The album was reissued on CD in 2000 in the UK and in 2001 in the US, featuring bonus tracks from various sources.

The original album was produced by Jimmy Miller, and the remastered reissue had assistance from Jim Capaldi. The release of “Traffic” was notable for being the last album recorded by the group before their initial breakup.
