5.0 out of 5 stars Dear Mr Fantastic!!! 11 Oct 2007
This is a great DVD of a wonderful event. The artists excel themselves, especially Steve Winwood whose rendition of Dear Mr Fantasy is so obviously a personal dedication to Gentleman Jim Capaldi. From the opening Paper Sun to the final cut there is some wonderful musicianship and the flow of Love for Jim is tangible. Shame the whole gig is not on there. Worth buying the CD also.

5.0 out of 5 stars jUST BUY IT! 5 Oct 2007
Verified Purchase
I'd only heard of Jim Capaldi through his collaborations with Steve Winwood and I brought this expecting Traffic tunes and what I got was ten times better.To be honest i wasn't sure who some of the people were but this disc is fantastic!Really great songs sung with obvious affection for Mr Capaldi.Steve Winwoods moving tribute to his friend and the final Song sung by all was Beautiful.Buy this now! and the money goes to charity so if you copy it and sell it I'll kick your ass.

4.0 out of 5 stars A warm farewell to a great man 19 Sep 2009
Verified Purchase
It's easy to get caught up in the emotion of these benefit concerts but this is a genuinely warm tribute to the great Jim Capaldi. Odd selection of contributors. Paul Weller does a couple of numbers. A very odd rendition of John Barleycorn must die by Joe Walsh? But's all done from the heart. Highlights are Steve Winwood, Yusuf Islam and Pete Townsend. A great DVD to treasure for any Traffic fan.

A Kid's Review
I was a fan of Traffic and Jim Capaldi wrote some great songs. When I saw the concert line-up I decided to go. I had never seen Joe Walsh, Paul Weller, Jon Lord, Yousuf Islam (Cat Stevens, to us oldies), Pete Townshend or Gary Moore in concert, and this was a bargain basement ticket to see them. The DVD does the evening justice. Personally-speaking, if I never see Pete Townshend or Paul Weller again, I couldn't care less, as their performances were professional, but just not to my taste. I would go out of my way to see Joe Walsh again, though he still has a voice that I am not sure about. I have been to see Jon Lord and Gary Moore since, they made that good an impression. It's a question of personal taste, but watch the DVD and you will understand.

A couple of years later the stand-out tracks I go back and watch are Gary Moore, Winwood, Joe Walsh, Jim Capaldi's brother, who embodies "the gift of unknown things", and all the bits where Jon Lord plays.

So much for performances, but one of the questions that one must ask is "does it capture the atmosphere?" Absolutely, is the answer. If you wanted a techno tour de force, this was not going to be your kind of concert. It was an exercise in simplicity itself. A revelatory mix of really good, even great, musicians, and a few coloured lights, and mostly pop/soul/bossa nova, and one of the most stunning bits of blues you are ever likely to see or hear. I am not a Luddite; I love technically brilliant concerts too, but that would have been inappropriate here.

I am glad I was there, but if you were not, or you want to see what concerts were like way back before technology took a big role in the presentation, this really is as good as it gets.
