Jim Capaldi and Rene Tinner visited Paul McCartney. Jim wants to know how Paul got all the Beatles recordings for the Anthology, because some of them were never officially available as records before. Pirated copies. Paul explains, “from the internet”. Laughing. “Now they can sue us” – the nice idea that the thieves can now sue those who took back their property makes for quite a refreshing serenity.
Jim Capaldi? Wonderful songwriter, unfortunately deceased. He wrote for Traffic The low spark of high heeled boys – Reebop Kwaku Baah plays here. In 1983 he recorded the beautiful Masimba bele with Stefan Krachten and Helmut Zerlett at CAN Studio. Reebop, who by the way could cook real soul food, died in the same year at Christmas in a Stockholm studio.
