Music: "Light Up or Leave Me Alone," Traffic (1971)



When I think of Traffic, I think of Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys, or John Barleycorn (Must Die)

Don’t forget Dream Gerrard

Here is what I have always wondered about this song; is it a weed smokin’ anthem or is he using some variation of “lighten up” to tell his girl friend to stop nagging him.

I agree this hasn’t aged so well. It seems like a typical blues jam. I like seeing Winwood before he realized he was a serious dude.

This is pretty amazing by comparison, though the pre-punk pacing drives me a little nuts. What are they DOING!


Jazz, man! Ever heard of it?
