Traffic Shouldn't Have Took More Than You Gave Comments
  1. Bernard Verhaegen

    those were musicians!

  2. Edward Michaels

    Released in 1968

  3. Ray B.

    I'd forgotten this tune. Oh my ,this is the time machine.

  4. mark1952able

    OMG! What a flashback!

  5. stretch54

    Jim Gordon always played with perfect time. That's why he worked so much. Not a real flashy drummer but had a great pulse, funkiness and musicality. His drumming on Low Spark is some of the best ever.

  6. Joesph Gomez

    I remember it was 1972 I lived in long beach ,their was small nite club call the gas chamber on spring & Redondo,the band was called ruddy merry,they would play ,this all the time,real good .

  7. Jim West

    I started playing this as an album cut on the radio in 1973

  8. Fairlight CMI

    I know it's Dave's song, a great one, and he plays it very well, but he should have asked Steve to sing lead.

  9. Praxedis Lindsey

    How can I give something that I do not have? And...does not the Giver of all give to all as He pleases...???

    Patrick Larry

    Hell is a prison sentence. 1000 years or eternity. Sinners get no quarter from god..

    Praxedis Lindsey

    @Patrick Larry Be careful where you tread...examine your feet...

    Praxedis Lindsey

    And god isn't god...but God

    Patrick Larry

    @Praxedis Lindsey the truth is god's a dick. He cares not for humans. We are all just prisoners on earth aka hell. Never to travel the stars. We were born as slaves. Sadly..

  10. Rev Eddro

    SUPERGROUP

  11. Stephen Marcus

    Alone Together a great, so underrated Dave Mason album. Was a favorite way back in the day. Superb guitarist.

  12. Mike Btrfld

  17. Rex Felton

    David Mason was an original member of Derek and The Dominos before recording session with Duane Allman. David Mason along with George Harrison played Derek and The Dominos in a six small venue European tour. David went his separate ways however there is an extremely hard to get initial singe, Tell the Truth b/w Turn It Over recorded with Mason, Harrison, Clapton, Radle, Gordon, and Whitlock produced by Phil Spector during Harrison 's All Things Must Pass sessions.

    Where can the Tell the Truth recording be found/heard?

    Stephen Marcus

    He also played with Hendrix, Delaney and Bonnie, Fleetwood Mac, and others. Overlooked by many for his guitar skills and song writing.

    bwlymoas

    I had no clue, this blows my mind, thx for the info Rex. You give good trivia!

  18. bannork

    Who took more than they gave, Dave?

    Guy Sharwood

    Whoever it was, Dave squeezed a great song out of it.

  19. Pierre-Louis Charvet

    cet album est excellent / thanks

  20. R. R. Rubin

    Shouldn't have took more than you gave
    Wouldn't be in this mess today
    I know we've all got different ways
    But the dues we've got to pay are still the same
    Trying to change the script for this old play
    Reading and not feeling what you say
    You' re coming on too strong for me to stay
    Interpret what you're seeing anyway
    Seems the simple things are the hardest to explain
    It's going to come too soon, there's another way
    Footprints in the snow will show well things are still the same
    Beneath the wall of sound someone helps to live again

  21. Andy Thomas

    A great tune. It could have been on the first Steve Stills album!

  22. Joine

  23. Armand deBlouwe

    "... and a LOT ..." ;-)

  30. EKENNYE

    Shouldn't have took more than you gave
    Wouldn't be in this mess today
    I know we've all got different ways

    Lyrics
    You shouldn't have took more than you gave
    We wouldn't be in this mess today
    And though we've all got different ways
    The dues we've got to pay are still the same

    Time to change the script for this old play
    Read it, not feeling what you say
    You're coming on too strong for me to stay
    Interpret what you see in any way

    It seems the simple things are hardest to explain
    There's gonna come too soon a day with all the rain
    Footprints in the snow will show that things are still the same
    When you get the warmth of sun someone else will live again

    You shouldn't have took more than you gave
    We wouldn't be in this mess today
    And though we've gone our different ways
    The dues we've got to pay are still the same

    You shouldn't have took more than you gave
    You shouldn't have took more than you gave
    You shouldn't have took more than you gave
    You shouldn't have took more than you gave
