John Barleycorn Must Die is the fourth studio album by English rock band Traffic, released in 1970 on Island Records in the United Kingdom, and United Artists in the United States, catalogue UAS 5504. It peaked at number 5 on the Billboard 200, making it their highest charting album in the US, and has been certified a gold record by the RIAA. Previously unreleased studio bonus tracks 4. ("I Just Want You To Know") and 8. ("Sittin' Here Thinkin' of My Love") appear to be demos left over from when Winwood was still planning to make this a solo album (titled Mad Shadows). Recorded on 18/19 November at the Fillmore East, the live tracks comprise what was to have been side one of a concert Traffic album, Live November 70 (ILPS 9142), presumably shelved in favour of Welcome to the Canteen.

Album: John Barleycorn Must Die (1970). Get the Sheet Music License This Song. The liner notes to John Barleycorn Must Die explain: "Between the years of 1900 and 1910, Cecil Sharpe collected a number of songs, John Barleycorn among them. The many versions of this song are said to have come from Oxfordshire, Sussex, Hampshire, Surrey and Somerset, and there are estimated to be between 100 and 140 versions. John Barleycorn: A Ballad gif Robert Burns (1782) clr gif. There was three kings into the east, Three kings both great and high, And they hae sworn a solemn oath John Barleycorn should die. They took a plough and plough'd him down, Put clods upon his head, And they hae sworn a solemn oath John Barleycorn was dead. But the cheerful Spring came kindly on, And show'rs began to fall; John Barleycorn got up again, And sore surpris'd them all.

Originally intended as Steve Winwood’s first solo album, John Barleycorn Must Die went down as the one of the reformed group’s finest creations. Winwood, Jim Capaldi and Chris Wood were fearless in their exploration, beginning the album with the seven-minute instrumental Glad to give listeners an idea of their uncompromising nature. Traffic were top-notch musicians who happened to have Steve Winwood and his golden throat as their ultimate weapon. There isn’t a bum track here
