Oh How We Danced isn't so much a solo effort from one of Traffic's founders -- it is more of an extension to what Traffic had been doing at the time. Jim Capaldi, drummer, songwriter, and sometime singer for that band, found that he had more songs in him than Traffic could use on any given record, so he went about assembling this disc to use up some of the excess. Oh How We Danced uses the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section along with various combinations of Traffic, along with ex-Traffic member Dave Mason and even Free's Paul Kossoff for maximum effect. The truth be known, if you were to intersperse some of these cuts in with cuts sung by Winwood, you would probably think they all sound pretty much alike. Highlights here include "Eve," "Don't Be a Hero," and the Al Jolson classic "Anniversary Song," which is where Capaldi gets the title of the disc from. The track "Open Your Heart" is actually a complete Traffic lineup circa Low Spark and it wouldn't have sounded out of place on that disc either. Capaldi's Oh How We Danced isn't anything but fine music made to be enjoyed. ~ James Chrispell
