Jim Capaldi - It's All Up To You (1974)

One of my all time favourite singles.  Jim Capaldi made some well respected music in his lifetime, solo, in Traffic and various other combos.  In my world he would never surpass this.  I raved about it in '74 (and do today which is a good test).  It didn't do well peaking at 27 in the charts of the day but it stood miles above it's contemporaries.  It's a soulful, big tune which should be covered (but i really don't want that do I?).  The performance is masterful.  I've yet to find it on CD. 

A much under-rated gem.
