After that it's Jethro Tull, The Who, Traffic, and Procol Harum. The Brits definitely have the market cornered in this area.

I'd agree with those String. Traffic especially as Jim Capaldi was a friend. His wife put on a great tribute concert for him with all his mates playing at the Roundhouse, and this year produced a book of his writings. I went to launch and there were some of his old rock friends there, a fun evening at the BBC Maida Vale studio. I think when I saw Procul harem they were actually supporting the Stones at the Lyceum. Pete Townsend still lives near me and I last talked to him when he was behind me in the queue for the cash machine! I couldn't be without my music.

Wow, you are lucky Jules. To live around all these legends, I envy you.

"Low Spark of High Heeled Boys" - probably my favorite Capaldi / Winwood composition.

Dave Mason plays around here ( Upstate NY ) from time to time in small venues. He is in fine form. His album "Alone Together" still gets played in this house.:-)
