The music of Dave Mason has floated in and out of my consciousness since 1967. My introduction to Dave Mason began with Traffic’s second album, Traffic. I became infatuated with English cottages and the structure of well written jams.
After Dave Mason left Traffic the second time, he took a journeyman’s path to Southern California recording a great solo album Alone Together in the process. I own the marble swirl vinyl edition.
He also recorded a wonderful collaboration with Cass Elliott that is now “out of print”, Dave Mason & Cass Elliott.
Dave Mason’s Traffic Jam, World Tour is coming to Hamden, Connecticut on Friday August 1. It is a free outdoor concert. If you are in the area you won’t want to miss it.
The “Traffic Jam” concerts will feature hits and deep album cuts from 1967’s Mr. Fantasy and 1968’s Traffic albums and additional Traffic jams plus new material and a selection of classic DAVE MASON music.
