Traffic ‎– John Barleycorn Must Die (1970)

John Barleycorn Must Die is the third proper album by English folk/jazz-rock band Traffic, released in 1970 on Island. Conceived as a Steve Winwood solo album, the project soon netted Jim Capaldi and Chris Wood into a regrouped three-piece lineup. The frontman was fresh off a stint with short-lived rock super-group Blind Faith.
