  • Liner Note Author: Bill DeYoung.

  • Traffic's last album before their 1974 split, WHEN THE EAGLE FLIES takes the jazz-rock textures of THE LOW SPARK OF HIGH HEELED BOYS and SHOOT OUT AT THE FANTASY FACTORY to a logical conclusion. The songs here are more tightly structured than they had been on previous records, with only three of the seven tracks creeping over the six-minute mark. However, the band's interplay is more rhythmically loose than ever before.
  • It's not surprising that bassist Rosko Gee and percussionist Reebop Kwaku Baah went on to join German art-rockers Can. In fact, the 11-minute workout "Dream Gerrard," with its fluid groove, surreal lyrics, Chris Wood's lyrical saxophone interjections, and Steve Winwood's idiosyncratic sound-over-meaning vocal style, would fit quite nicely on one of Can's albums from this period. Elsewhere, more concise R&B-influenced tunes ("Something New" and "Walking in the Wind") foreshadow the mature elegance of Winwood's later solo work, and the soaring, keyboard-led title track ends the album--and the key phase of Traffic's career--on a suitably strong, communal note.
