On this very date in 1967, Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi, Dave Mason, and Chris Wood started the band Traffic. They were very progressive at the time, using a Mellotron, a Sitar, a Harp, and displaying jazz tendencies in rock music.  But it worked, and it worked well!  Six months later we had their first album, and the first release "Paper Sun".

I wish Dave Mason would have stayed a little longer, but if it would've meant missing out on some of Traffic's best classics... then never mind.  Today I will salute all Traffic fans on the 5:00 Punch-Out with some old-school stuff!  Hope 'ya catch it!
