Why Can't I Buy It?

"Traffic was one of the first bands I really dug - after Beatles and Rolling Stones, and Allman Brothers and... one or two others. Shortly after discovering Traffic I listened to this recording and was so impressed I made a recording of it. For many years I listened to this really crappy tape recording, but the music was good enough to shine through.
I've revisited Traffic in recent years, bought everything they've made and even a couple of Steve Winwood solo efforts, which I found disappointing. Jim Capaldi I remember as being better than that. I've been keeping an eye out for this CD in recent years. Though I can scarcely remember it - I'm talking an unbelievable 30 years ago now, I do remember it was absolutely first class. I bought a more recent Jim Capaldi recording recently to see if it compared, but it was nothing to how I remember SCDB.
Please re-release this album

"Why on earth is this album deleted?? The title track in particular is brilliant, and a great example of the high quality pop/rock that the mid-70s produced in such abundance (see also the best tracks by bands such as Ace and Stretch).
If you would just love to see this great Capaldi album made available again, please mark this review as helpful."
