VH-l (Sat., May 7, 4 p.m. ET)


This special marks the reunion of the expansive '60s soft-rock group Traffic, who this week released their first album since 1974. At least it's a partial reunion, with charter members Steve Winwood and Jim Capaldi (who has a face that makes Tommy Lee Jones's look cherubic) joined by hired studio help.

Though the new material sounds decidedly thin when juxtaposed with the group's classics like "Dear Mr. Fantasy," this is still an engaging piece of pop nostalgia. It's nice to see that Traffic still jams.
