On the Road
When the Eagle Flies
On The Road is a live album (2 LPs, reissued on 1 CD) by English rock band Traffic, released in 1973. Recorded live in Germany, it features the Shoot Out at the Fantasy Factory lineup plus extra keyboardist (for live performances) Barry Beckett.
The initial U.S. release of On the Road was as a single LP consisting of: "The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys" (edited to 15:10), "Shoot Out at the Fantasy Factory," "(Sometimes I Feel So) Uninspired" & "Light Up or Leave Me Alone."
In their retrospective review, Allmusic praised the playing of Roger Hawkins, David Hood, and Barry Beckett, but condemned the album for both stretching the songs out for too long and failing to improve on the lackluster studio versions of the three songs from Shoot Out at the Fantasy Factory.
