Just Trying To Make A Dollar

This weekend, I found myself listening to more than once, Jim Capaldi's 1979 disco classic "Shoe Shine". British drummer and former member of Traffic stepped into the 'disco world' back in 1979 and released Electric Nights on RSO Records. This record included the track "Shoe Shine", which was the album's single and standout track. I can't say that I know much about Capaldi's music career outside of this record and I can't say that I'm much of a Traffic fan, however that being said, Capaldi has definitely won me over for at least one record.

Many years ago I bought a 7" by Mr Capaldi, called 'That's love'. A very good track!

I was racking my brain trying to remember why the beginning of the Capaldi song sounded so familiar, and you saved me an evening of bad sleep - Justus Kohncke! Thanks!!
