Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). Having listened to and enjoying Traffic for the last 40 plus years, When the Eagle Flies, to me has to be the most mesmerising album in the whole Traffic catalog. Free spirited jazz improvisations with vocals. The center piece "Dream Gerrard" is the absolute pinnacle of Traffic achievement.
