When the Eagle Flies is the seventh studio album released by English rock band Traffic, in 1974. It was the final album released by the band until their 1994 reunion Far from Home. The album featured Jim Capaldi on drums, keyboards and vocals; Rosko Gee on bass guitar; Steve Winwood on guitar, keyboards, and vocals; and Chris Wood on flute and saxophone. Percussionist Rebop Kwaku Baah was fired prior to the album's completion, but his contributions are heard on two of its tracks

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.

Still, this was nominally a rock album, with lyrics and vocals, and Winwood often seemed to be improvising his melodies over the music, paying little heed to the meaning of the words, especially on the title track.
