Today we remember the late great Christopher Gordon Blandford 'Chris' Wood (24 June 1944—12 July 1983) a founding member of the English rock band Traffic, along with Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi, and Dave Mason. The death of two close friends, Free’s Paul Kossoff and former band-mate Rebop Kwaku Baah followed by that of his (by now, estranged) wife laid very heavy on Chris. While working on a solo album that was to be titled Vulcan, Wood died in 1983 of pneumonia in Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, England.
Stephen Lawrence "Steve" Winwood was born on May 12,1948 in Handsworth, Birmingham, England. At the age of 14, Winwood joined the Spencer Davis Group. As a teenager, Winwood played organ and guitar, backing blues singers such as Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, T-Bone Walker, Howlin' Wolf, Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley on their Uk tours. In April 1967, he formed Traffic with Jim Capaldi, Dave Mason & Chris Wood. In 1968 Winwood played the organ on the song "Voodoo Chile" on the Jimi Hendrix album Electric Ladyland. He formed the supergroup Blind Faith in 1969 with Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, and Ric Grech.
On this day (Sept. 24) in 1967: Traffic made their live debut when they appeared at Saville Theatre in London; formed by former Spencer Davis Group vocalist-keyboardist Steve Winwood with three 22-year-old friends, drummer/singer Jim Capaldi, singer/guitarist Dave Mason & reed player Chris Wood; the group was intended to be a cooperative, with the members living together in a country cottage in Berkshire and collaborating on their songs…(this very cool clip from later the same year…)

The song...
All Things Music Plus ON THIS DATE (43 YEARS AGO) July 1, 1970 - Traffic: John Barleycorn Must Die is released. # ALL THINGS MUSIC PLUS (5/5) # Allmusic 4.5/5 stars # Rolling Stone (see original review below) John Barleycorn Must Die is the fourth album by Traffic, released on July 1, 1970.

Traffic's 1971 release, The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys was an artistic peak for the post-Dave Mason version of Traffic. Jim Capaldi contributed the heated Light Up or Leave Me Alone, and his writing with Steve Winwood added a breadth and complexity to the approaches to the songs that lift the album overall. Other highlights include Rock and Roll Stew, Many a Mile to Freedom, and Rainmaker, but the title track is best of all -- more than 12 minutes of jazz/jam inflected art rock that comments on the evils of the music business.
