Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Traffic Live, 1972

Traffic, an English rock band formed in 1967 by Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi, Chris Wood and Dave Mason (who was recently showcased here), perform "Forty Thousand Headmen" in Santa Monica, 1972. This trippy tune about a thief who travels to a golden shrine while pursued by 40,000 headmen is complimented by Wood's haunting flute solo and Winwood's vocals.
