"Dave Mason Rejoins Traffic"|
Rolling Stone, June 6, 1968
Dave Mason has rejoined Traffic. The singer-sitarist-guitarist left the group in a
surprising move at the end of last year to concentrate on a solo career as a record producer
and singer, but has now rejoined the group he founded with Stevie Winwood, Chris Wood and
Jim Capaldi, on a full-time basis. The reunion took place several weeks ago in New York city
where Mason was on a visit in connection with his production activities. He ran into
Traffic, was invited back and accepted. Mason played with the group at a recording session
in New York and has now returned with the group to Britain where they are currently
completing their next album. Mason has written several tracks and it is tentatively set for
release in England in late summer.|
During his absence - and Winwood had said that he did not expect Dave Mason to rejoin the group - Mason did one solo record (accompanied by Traffic) and produced another single for Traffic.
