Heaven Is In Your Mind (Bonus Tracks)

by Traffic
Heaven Is In Your Mind by Traffic
Released: Nov 1967
Label: Island Records
For reasons that are more or less lost to history, United Artists slapped a new title on Traffic's 1967 debut. The label also altered the sequencing. That said, Heaven Is in Your Mind isn't that different from its U.K. counterpart, Mr. Fantasy. It stands as a landmark of vintage British psych. Traffic turned far earthier on subsequent releases, but here they are awash in sitars, gooey reverb and orchestral bliss. Chief songwriters Steve Winwood and Dave Mason were at the top of their games. "Dear Mr. Fantasy" is the big classic, but don't sleep on the phantasmagoric "Hole in My Shoe."
