Traffic no contest for me. Steve Winwood and Dave Mason, unbeatable combo!

Re: Ten Years After versus Traffic!

On the strength of their electrifying performance at Woodstock I gave the edge to Ten Years After.

Re: Ten Years After versus Traffic!

Both A space in time and The low spark of the high heeled boys are among my all-time favourite albums. I like most of Traffic's other albums too but TYA were more adventurous in pushing the boundaries of the blues form with albums such as Shhhh, Watt and Cricklewood Green.

Exclamation Re: Ten Years After versus Traffic!

I really like both here, but I'm giving this one to Ten Years After because somehow they've managed to recede further from the popular consciousness than Traffic. Ten Years After is therefore somewhat more obscure these days.

I too have them all but to call out a favorite? Thats tough. If I had to pick it would be R&R Music To The World, but 50000 Miles off Cricklewood is probably my favorite song, however, I can listen to Help Me off Recorder Live all day. Alvin Lee solo The Bluest Blues also gives me chills so I cant really say. Good to see the old pillars of the forum are still here. Missing many I used to converse with over 10 years ago though. Many are gone I see. Back to TYA, my older brother introduced me to psyc and blues when I was just a wee lad in the 60's and have never changed my liking. TYA and (non-in a gadda da vida ) Iron Butterfly, Mahogany Rush etc.... still some of my favorites.

I love that track 50,000 Miles from Green.
Going downstairs later and crank my new JAMO tower speakers with that lp. :)
CK out the Obscure music thread I started and the Prog one also...some interesting things posted on those threads.
I haven't listned to R&R Music in a long time..I'll ck it out.

Who are some of your favorite psych and prog bands?
