Although often described as a "lost Traffic album", Gordon Jackson's Thinking Back, upon closer examination, reveals itself to be something more. It's true that almost every track on this rare 1969 album does have Dave Mason, Jim Capaldi, Chris Wood, and Steve Winwood playing on it. But what we have here is a highly personal collection of songs composed by a long-overlooked talent who was then at the crossroads of his career.
