Terrific tribute to the late Jim Capaldi - and a good fundra

"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.""
A really nice tribute to a real talent

"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.

"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."
