Traffic - Mr. Fantasy (Island ILPS 9061) Made in UK 1967 original gatefold first pressing LP | vinyl: excellent/near mint besides one small scratch on side A some little ticks in song one and two. Cover: VG+
Pink Bulls-eye labels.

Released 1967. For the recording, group members included Jim Capaldi, Steve Winwood, Chris Wood and Dave Mason, however Mason left the band before the album was released. The album reached the number 16 position in the UK album chart 30 December 1967, and reached number 88 in the American Billboard charts.

Considered by far the strangest and most art rock style album that Traffic released, MR. Fantasy didn’t gain much more than a cult following for Traffic at the time. Critics seemed to like the album, though, and most said it was clear that Steve Winwood and Traffic were good at putting together semi-mainstream psychedelic rock, except this album was not quite mainstream enough. By their next release, the eponymous Traffic, the band was said to have worked through that.
