Product Description

In January 2007 a fantastic line-up of guests gathered at the Roundhouse in London to pay tribute to the late Jim Capaldi of Traffic and to raise money for his children's charity The Landmark Trust. Old friends such as Yusuf Islam (aka Cat Stevens), Pete Townshend of The Who, Joe Walsh of The Eagles, Jon Lord of Deep Purple, Gary Moore, Dennis Locorriere of Dr. Hook and of course his Traffic colleague Steve Winwood, were joined by younger admirers such as Paul Weller and The Storys to perform their favorite Traffic and Jim Capaldi tracks in front of a sell out audience. The evening was hosted by broadcasting legend "Whispering" Bob Harris.

Tracklisting: 1) Paper Sun - Paul Weller 2) Lost Inside Your Love - Stevie Lange 3) Living On The Outside - Joe Walsh, Bill Wyman & Jon Lord 4) Elixir Of Life - Dennis Locorriere 5) Whale Meat Again - Simon Kirke 6) Love's Got A Hold On Me - The Storys 7) Forty Thousand Headman - Joe Walsh 8) Man With No Country - Yusuf Islam 9) Light Up Or Leave Me Alone - Steve Winwood 10) Dear Mr Fantasy - Steve Winwood 11) Evil Love - Gary Moore 12) Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush - Paul Weller 13) Let Me Make Something In Your Life - Stevie Lange & Jon Lord 14) Gifts Of Unknown Things - Phil Capaldi & Jon Lord 15) Love You Till The Day I Die - Margo Buchanan 16) No Face, No Name, No Number - Pete Townshend 17) John Barleycorn Must Die - Joe Walsh 18) Pearly Queen - Paul Weller 19) Rock And Roll Stew - Dennis Locorriere, Margo Buchanan & Stevie Lange 20) Love Will Keep Us Alive - Steve Winwood, Joe Walsh & the ensemble Bonus Features: Behind The Scenes featurette.

Even many Traffic fans probably aren't familiar with the extensive solo career of the band's cofounder Jim Capaldi. Therefore, this multi-artist, live tribute to the late singer/songwriter/drummer (also available on CD), recorded in January 2007 in London, will be a revelation to many who only know his work in conjunction with Steve Winwood. About half the 20 songs are selections from the late Capaldi's many solo releases, several of them relatively obscure. An all-star ensemble led by Winwood, Paul Weller, Joe Walsh, and Pete Townsend give the Traffic/Capaldi catalog a spin with impressive results. Although bandmate Dave Mason is conspicuous by his absence, the cast also features Bad Company's Simon Kirke, blues rocker Gary Moore, longtime Deep Purple keyboardist Jon Lord, and Capaldi's brother Phil, all interpreting tunes Capaldi wrote or co-wrote. Aside from the Traffic material, he was best known for ballads such as the lovely "Lost Inside Your Love" (gracefully performed here by singer Stevie Lange) and the Eagles hit "Love Will Keep Us Alive," which closes the program on a melancholy note. Yet it's his bluesy midtempo rockers like "Whale Meat Again" (urged on by Kirke), "Pearly Queen" (Weller), and "Gifts of Unknown Things" (Phil Capaldi sounding eerily like his brother) that resonate with the greatest intensity. Yusuf Islam (a.k.a. Cat Stevens) makes a rare appearance (gliding into his "Wild World" during "Man with No Country"), and Pete Townshend also turns in an impassioned performance on this obviously heartfelt tribute to a sadly overlooked talent. --Hal Horowitz

That song and performance is in the top ten performances of all time in my opinion.

A very strong tribute concert in honor of the late Jim Capaldi's time with Traffic and as a strong solo artist.
I agree that I wish Steve Winwood spent more time on stage, as well as Pete Townshend (Townshend couldn't rehearse with the all-star band because of The Who's "Endless Wire" tour, but turns in a stunning solo piece, "No Name, No Face, No Number." A great take.
Nice to see Bill Wyman on stage again, for a couple tunes, and Simon Kirke's voice and drumming are another highlight. Love Paul Weller, too.
Proceeds from this DVD and the CD of the same show go toward a benefit in Capaldi's name - his widow, Anna Capaldi, has an orphanage for children that takes care of youngsters in need of medical help, food and love.
I strongly recomend this DVD to all fans of rock, Traffic, Jim Capaldi, Winwood, The Who and all of the other artists who participated. It'll help out children in need, and it will honor the late, great Jim Capaldi. Thanks.

This is not only a salute to the brilliance of the late Jim Capaldi; it is a wonderful look at artists who truly believe that music can deliver special meaning for the young who are in need. The concert was held in January 2007 and covers the solo and Traffic careers of Capaldi, while raising funds for The Landmark Trust, a children's charity.

There is an incredible list of performers - including Paul Weller, Joe Walsh, Pete Townshend, Steve Winwood, Jon Lord, Gary Moore, Simon Kirke and Yusuf Islam - and each are given the space to shine. Truly, any egos are left at the door.

Capaldi was an artful lyricist, but is a vastly underrated drummer, who skillfully brought jazz elements to the British music scene. This is classic rock that is truly "classic."

When watching and listening to these songs covered by some very competent musos, you soon realise how great that Capaldi-Winwood collaboration was.
It is a pity that "Coloured Rain" and "Smiling Phases" weren't included.
Nevetheless, a great buy.

The Dear Mr Fantasy tribute to Jim Capaldi is one I happened on by sheer accident for under five dollars in a bargain bin at San Diego's Sam Goody music store. Fully aware that a lot of tributes are pure crap, I took a chance on this after seeing the all-star lineup and after some goading from a friend who bought the other copy that was in the bin.
Well, what a find! In the more than two hours of music you get, there are a whole lot of excellent Capaldi/Traffic covers and nothing at all that is unlistenable. Fans of Traffic who are unfamiliar with Capaldi's solo work will find a lot to delight them and that rare fan of Capaldi's solo work who is blissfully unaware of his work with Traffic should achieve the same level of musical satisfaction.
I could go on and on but I won't. Here are what I think are the highlights: Paper Sun, which aptly features Paul Weller as the song is so very Welleresque; Living on the Outside which features Joe Walsh, Bill Wyman and Jon Lord; Elixir of Life featuring Dennis Locorriere; Whale Meat Again, which features Simon Kirke; Joe Walsh's stormy assault on Forty Thousand Headmen; Yusuf Islam's plangent cover of Man With No Country; a tasty take of the title cut featuring Steve Winwood; the bluesy Evil Love featuring Gary Moore that I think is the DVD's best cut; a convincing John Barleycorn Must Die that features Joe Walsh; and the funky Rock and Roll Stew that features Dennis Locorriere, Margo Buchanan and Stevie Lange.
This flaming bargain comes with an attractive booklet packed with pictures, DVD info, the story of Traffic, and various tributes to Jim Capaldi from some of the key participants in the concert. If you are a fan of Traffic or of Capaldi on any level, then you should pick this DVD up soon. This is one tribute that does justice to the music of its subject.

This isn't a Traffic concert, but a tribute to Jim Capaldi. I too would have liked to see Steve Winwood on stage more, and with a little less artsy band. However everyone turns in good performances. Sure this is sort of like the typical house band plus guests type thing, but Paul Weller in particular turns in several good performances. If you don't have the Last Traffic Jam, by all means buy it first, but then come back and buy this. In addition to a few Traffic songs, you also get some of his best solo tunes, too.

Jim Capaldi was a really good musician and will surely be missed.

Just touching on the highlights, for me they were Paul Weller and house band performing a spectacular rendition of Paper Sun. The band and Paul hit all the nuance of the song, probably Jim and Traffic's finest moment.
Simon Kirk sings very nicely Whale Meat Again.
Joe Walsh, with Jon Lord on Hammond and Bill Wyman, bass, do 40,000 Headmen and John Barleycorn Must Die. Joe straining just a little with age to hit all them high notes pretty successfully.
But the most surprising highlight of this disc, one I did not anticipate at all is the appearance of the former Cat Stevens. After a very warm introduction to the song Man Without A Country I was very pleased that Cat/Yusef has not lost any range or delicacy in his singing. One of the last of the old guard that still sounds like his younger self. This performance made me a fan of this song of which I knew nothing prior.
And then Gary Moore, of whom I knew basically nothing other than name recognition. Turns out Gary sings with a very strong, gutsy voice and is easily one of the best guitarists today. After hearing Gary sing here,I'd love to hear the original version by Jim. Oh one small note....I couldn't help think of Dean Wareham who's book I had read recently in which he admits to frowning upon guitarists who make the "guitar face" when playing. Gary Moore and Joe Walsh are good examples of this.
Weller returns with a rendition of the little heard Traffic single "Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush"-just delightful! I'm so glad he chose to do this song, it's a real treat. And the version Paul and the house band perform is spectacular. Definately a highlight. Well, that's why I'm mentioning it here now isn't it-because it was one of the highlights of this disc for me!
