Whale Meat Again

Original Release Date: 


Original Label:


On his second album, Jim’s confidence was clearly growing and as such, the songs and arrangements further consolidated his solo credentials. It was seen as a more cohesive and substantial collection than his debut, and lyrically, it explored darker themes.

"represents a further moving away from Traffic's sound and Capaldi marking out his own territory more forcefully"

Terry Stauntman, Classic Rock
