The sweet smell of success = Expanded edition = (CD)
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the first ever CD edition of the wonderful 1980 album by JIM CAPALDI, "THE SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS". Recorded after a hiatus which saw Jim living in Brazil, the album featured classic tracks such as 'MAN WITH NO COUNTRY', the album's title track, a fabulous re-interpretation of the classic TRAFFIC track 'THE LOW SPARK OF HIGH HEELED BOYS' and 'GOING HOME', co-written with STEVE WINWOOD.
Jim engaged the services of such musicians as MEL COLLINS (Saxes & flute), PETE BONAS (guitar & bass) and CHRIS PARREN (keyboards) for the sessions and the album was a welcome return to form. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been remastered from the original master tapes and includes seven bonus tracks, including six previously unreleased recordings. Of these, three tracks are demos recorded in Brazil in 1979. The reissue includes a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork and features a new essay.
