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.

A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
