Be sure to join us next week for more music from the vault.
Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this we have Grateful Dead music from 1976, 1981, and 1987.
Gimme Some Lovin was not a "Traffic classic". It was written by Spencer Davis, Steve Winwood, and Muff Winwood, and released by Spencer Davis Group, in 1967, prior to the formation of Traffic. Since Davis has repeatedly asserted that SDG was Steve's best band, he might be peeved to see his tune attributed to Traffic.
