"Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of the album Vulcan by the late Chris Wood, founder member of the legendary Traffic and flautist and saxophonist extraordinaire. Recorded just after the demise of Traffic in 1974, Vulcan was begun for Island Records but shelved in 1978. The sessions featured contributions from Steve Winwood and members of The Wailers, along with a live recording of Traffic performing the title track in 1974, but due to a change in musical fashion with the advent of Punk, the album failed to see the light of day. Island boss Chris Blackwell returned the tapes to Chris Wood in the late 1970s. Following Chris' untimely death in 1983 the tapes were passed on to his sister, Stephanie. Now, 25 years later, and after three years of research and preparation, Esoteric have pieced together the sessions in co-operation with Stephanie Wood to bring you Vulcan."
