When Stevie Winwood left Spencer Davis Group in 1967, he took his song “Gimme Some Lovin'” with him. It had been a big hit in The United States (#7) and Britain (#2).
His next stop was Traffic with drummer Jim Capaldi, guitarist Dave Mason, and flute player Chris Wood. They were inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame in 2004.
They were originallly a psychedelic rock band that would move in a blues direction. They were primarily known for their album releases which would sell millions of copies in The United States.
Their highest charting single was a live version of “Gimme Some Lovin’ which reached number 68 during 1971 proving that a good song is always a good song.
