http://www.davemasonmusic.com/ David Thomas "Dave" Mason (born 10 May 1946) is an English singer-songwriter and guitarist from Worcester, who first found fame with the rock band Traffic. In his long career, Mason has played and recorded with many of the era's most notable pop and rock musicians, including Paul McCartney, George Harrison, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Michael Jackson, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Steve Winwood, Fleetwood Mac, Delaney Bramlett, and Cass Elliot. Mason's best known song is "Feelin' Alright", recorded by Traffic in 1968 and later by many other performers, including Joe Cocker, who had a major hit with the song in 1969. For Traffic, he also wrote "Hole in My Shoe", a psychedelic pop song that became a hit in its own right. "We Just Disagree", Mason's 1977 solo US hit written by Jim Krueger, has become a staple of US Classic Hits and Adult Contemporary radio playlists. In 2004, Mason was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a founding member of Traffic. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dave_Mason Great track from Dave's 1973 album ' Its Like You Never Left ' featuring Stevie Wonder on harmonica. The Lonely One Lyrics There've been moments of despair There've been time I couldn't care I was the lonely one Then you showed myself to me And I found I needn't be Another lonely one (CHORUS) Running in the wilderness And dreaming in the sun And crying out to the sky For God's eternal son Through the truth and through the lies There is really no disguise To hide the lonely ones You can find them on a card Being matched with other hearts The really lonely ones (CHORUS) Inside your room behind your walls I see your face you know I hear your calls Is this some madness that's been left unchecked Or will there always be just promises (CHORUS) There are men who hold the key To set everybody free But are they lonely ones And if the day should come When they all can work as one There'll be a destiny

Title: Feelin' Alright (track 05) Artist: Traffic Album: Traffic Year: 1968 Label: Island, United Artists, Polydor Writer(s): Dave Mason Lyrics: Seems I've got to have a change of scene Cause every night I have the strangest dream Imprisoned by the way it couldn't be Left here on my own or so it seems I've got to leave before I start to scream But someone's locked the door and took the key Ya feelin' alright? I'm not feelin' too good myself Well, ya feelin' Alright? I'm not feelin' too good myself Well boy you sure took me for one big ride And even now I sit and wonder why That when I think of you I start to cry I just can't waste my time I must keep dry Got to stop believin' in all your lies Cause there's too much to do before I die Ya feelin' alright? I'm not feelin' too good myself Well, ya feelin' alright? I'm not feelin' too good myself Don't get too lost in all I say Like the time I really felt that way But that was then and now it's today Can't get off yet and so I'm here to stay Till' someone comes along and takes my place With a different name, yes, and a different face Ya Feelin' alright? I'm not feelin' too good myself Well, ya feelin' alright? I'm not feelin' too good myself

Bergo '45 - Song of the Week: This is a weekly dive into the musical mind of Bergo '45. At the start of each week, a new song is chosen by a different member of the band as part of our Song of the Week Series. Every selection made is one of many ingredients mixed into the band's collective cauldron of influences and generally speaking, all fall into genres under that great incestuous umbrella known as Rock And Roll. Take a chair, grab a towel and give it a listen... S.O.T.W.

It gets me every time." - Devon Beuschel "The Low Spark Of High-Heeled Boys" by Traffic The Low Spark Of High-Heeled Boys (1971) Steve Winwood - Jim Capaldi Island Records Traffic were an English rock band whose members came from the West Midlands. The group formed in April 1967 by Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi, Chris Wood and Dave Mason. They began as a psychedelic rock group whose early singles were influenced by The Beatles and diversified their sound through the use of instruments such as keyboards like the Mellotron, reed instruments, and by incorporating jazz and improvisational techniques in their music. Their first three singles were "Paper Sun", "Hole in My Shoe", and "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush". After disbanding in 1969, during which time Winwood joined Blind Faith, Traffic reunited in 1970 to release the critically acclaimed album John Barleycorn Must Die. The band's line-up varied from this point until they disbanded again in 1975, although a partial reunion, with Winwood and Capaldi, took place in 1994. In 2004, Traffic was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. © Island Records
