This multi-talented West Midlands group gained
international success in the late 1960s and early 1970s,
particularly in the USA where as a three piece they
attracted a huge following. In Britain, they are remembered
mostly for some memorable and ground-breaking singles and
albums that scored high chart placings.
Traffic was formed when Steve Winwood, who was the focal
point of the Spencer Davis Group decided to move beyond the
restrictions of the group and form a band with three other
Birmingham area musicians. Jim Capaldi had formed More...

Review about Traffic songs
just a song | Reviewer: Gracy------ About the song Dear Mr. Fantasy performed by Traffic
this track i heard recently, as im a digger for old rock n rol music, so i liked it...and i dnt understand why to bring drugs or politics....songs are made for all, who finds something for their soul in it they listen to the song...so i think no point in relating songs to argumental topics,like religion or politics, remember, these two themes always lead to War, and war, what is it good for, absolutly nothing....Remember this song...??
Good Luck for All.
Obama is as cool as this song | Reviewer: ella------ About the song Dear Mr. Fantasy performed by Traffic
I love Mr. Fantasy. I also love the fact that President Obama was reelected and our economy is doing much better, no matter how much you racist, gun loving goons deny it.
Bush was the Definition of idiotic slacker as are all Republicans.
Passionately played | Reviewer: Ron------ About the song Dear Mr. Fantasy performed by Traffic
Always loved this song. Saw Steve last month. This was the second song of his encore. He can absolutely shred the guitar, plays with soul and feeling. To hear this live was in worth the price of admission.
Drifting back to spring forward | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Dear Mr. Fantasy performed by Traffic
Great song! Saw steve winwood concert last week and song was one of the highlights of the concert. 40 yrs later, the resonance that the song provides is still strong. Many at show were in their 60's and commented about how it took everyone bak in time. Music of the era was quite powerful and had many messages that are unifying.
kids | Reviewer: misterbill------ About the song Dear Mr. Fantasy performed by Traffic
I drive sports charters for a high school, it seems the kids like to sing songs that are from my generation. I'm thinking about going back to playing open mikes-thought I would sing the songs that were always played whenever a rock band had a concert, to educate kids of the music of my day. That would be, 'Dear Mr Fantasy', 'A lighter Shade of Pale', and Sunshine of Your Love'. Not sure I could pull off Sunshine of Your Love, but I used to play Dear Mr Fantasy quite well. It is amazing that I can remember how to play songs that I knew in high school ('72), I have an awful time remembering songs now. I've reverted to using a music stand, which for open mikes no one seems to care.
By the way-thank you I could never understand the last line of this song!
Every Mothers Son | Reviewer: Mike G------ About the song Every Mothers Son performed by Traffic
The beauty of this song is that you get instantly swept away by the melody - the instruments are so powerfully coordinated that you fall in love with it before you can figure out the lyrics!!
Thanks for finally bringing this great song all together for me as I continue to enjoy this great Traffic album!!
Not about drugs at all. | Reviewer: Mr. fantasy------ About the song Dear Mr. Fantasy performed by Traffic
I'm sure everyone knows a mr fantasy somewhere in their life. I think it's the person who always acts upbeat and happy, even when their not, just so that the people their around can have a good time. sometimes, they even act as the shoulder to cry on, taking everyone elses problems onto them selves, looking out for strangers. but occasionally, it becomes to much and they have a breakdown. I think this song is a dedication to all those people, from someone who has been helped by them.
Who knows, perhaps we've all been mr fantasy at some point.
Wonderfulness personified. | Reviewer: James Bridgewood------ About the song Dear Mr. Fantasy performed by Traffic
I have the widest musical tastes and thought I had seen it all....
Until I stumbled upon this randomly a couple of nights ago.
I think this classic track is amazing(Not a phrase I would use lightly)
Having looked at the lyrics they are slightly sparse and I think in their haste to get the track out there they have perhaps missed a trick as if they had added maybe two different verses to this wonderful melody this had the makings of a worldwide smash.
However as it stands it still washes over me like a strawberry waterfall.
I just so love this track and will be playing it to chill from here on in.
It was nice to read all the other perspectives ,keep on rockin people!!
WAKE UP.."SHEEPLES" | Reviewer: Frank------ About the song Dear Mr. Fantasy performed by Traffic
Dear Gary and Charlie...If you truly don't understand why Obama hasn't fulfilled his promises, then you're both Mr.Fantasy! Once you win the election and take office, you're given two choices. One, do as the Bankers and elite tell you to do, or two, get a bullet! Time to quite blaming those Demo-Liberals for everything. Here's another piece of reality...Watch Ziegist "The movie", and learn the TRUE religion! You all live in a fantasy, that there's a man in the sky, sitting on a cloud that has nothing better to do, then to listen to your bitching and crying. Grow up! BTW Charlie, learn to spell FANTASY! When you learn the truth about Christianity, you're really going to be embarrassed. Oh, and there's not a Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy..sorry HAPPY Holidays, oh, and the Constitution was not written "One Nation God", it was added later and will be the downfall of our Country!!!
Drugs? | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Dear Mr. Fantasy performed by Traffic
So most comments think this song is about drugs? I dont really see that. I think this song is about self sacrifice. About playing a role that you dont necessarily want to play just so everyone else can be happy. I dont really connect the meaning of this song to drugs. It just doesn't make sense to me.
