Sure would appreciate any additional information on the very last version listing Island 90058-1, US pressing with light blue label, unknown release date. Is this really a rare pressing as noted by a Discogs member who is selling a copy of this LP?

I have 3 copies, one tan label and 2 black and Orange. One black and Orange has credits and one has credits listed. I'm guessing the one without credits maybe an even older pressing.

This is the closest to the US copy that I possess except my labels also sport the classic Traffic logo.

My copy of this release; black Island label features:: Side 1: "P" in a circle followed by, 1970 Island Records Ltd.; the line of text below: ST-IL825111-SP. Matrix/Runout:: (Side 1 etched): ST-IL-825111-A; (machine stamped) the logo for Specialty Records Corporation. Catalog #s on spine; rear sleeve & labels all match Notes. And the Barcode matches. How come the release date on the listing release is '1983'; however, on my LP label I see '1970'? Anyone want to have a go at this...grok_23

The production notes on the label are a bit different on this release also. They are left justified as opposed to centered like many of the other black/orange labels.

Steve Winwood was already a big name in pop music when he started the Group Traffic in 1967. Although Winwood was only nineteen, he had as the lead singer of the Spencer Davis Group argued the uk charts once already. It was intended that Traffic would have a more interesting sound than his previous group, but soon silted this mission in the eyes of some members. Winwood left for the super group Blind Faith (with Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker), which also was short-lived. Around 1969 the singer and keyboard player decided to record a solo album, which he soon asked the help of former Traffic members Jim Capaldi and Chris Wood. Without even thinking of a reunion, the trio played frank and free in the studio. Now a few years earlier suggested the goal was finally reached and therefore the name Traffic again popped up. John Barleycorn Must Die is the product of these sessions that knew no musical restrictions. Drawn out jams are interspersed with folk and soul songs that Winwood to demonstrate quite the space gets his magical voice. This reissue is accompanied by an extra disc containing alternative versions and a matchless concert.

Folky, jazzy, prog rock, originally intended as Winwood's solo début, it didn't take long until he pulled in the other guys from traffic, minus Mason, to complete the album. The opening and closing tracks are OK, but other than that the I'm not really feeling it.
