Dear Mr Fantasy: a Celebration for Jim Capaldi (Eagle)

Dear Mr Fantasy: a Celebration for Jim Capaldi (Eagle)

Recorded at January's Roundhouse benefit concert in tribute to Jim Capaldi, Dear Mr Fantasy features some decent performances from the late Traffic drummer's friends and fans, but ultimately fails to sustain the energy for its near two-hour length.





It's nice to give all the participants a track or two, but this is a double album that should have been trimmed to a single. Paul Weller's trio of Traffic songs are as good as any here, Paper Sun capturing the fizz.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

You and your neighbours will benefit from a beautiful gathering spot. It's easy to feel alienated in this technological age. Create a space where you can escape computers, telephones and artificial lighting. Don't be surprised when you feel compelled to visit this sanctuary every day. Spending time outdoors will make you more relaxed and productive.More
