Mr Fantasy Book Launch

20 Jun 2012

Jim Capaldi's friends and family gathered at BBC's Maida Vale Studios to celebrate the launch of our latest limited edition, MR FANTASY, last night. Guests, including contributors Steve Winwood and Robert Plant, were entertained by Saint Jude, Steve Balsamo and Rosalie Deighton. Aninha Capaldi thanked everyone for their support in realising her late husband's dream.

'Some ten years ago I encouraged Jim to gather all his favourite lyrics together into a book. He had started selecting songs and writing notes to go with them and had asked his friend Robert Plant to write a foreword but, sadly, in 2005 he ran out of time to finish. One of his last wishes was for me to complete what he had started and I promised him I would.' - ANINHA CAPALDI

Copies of MR FANTASY, complete with accompanying colour vinyl and art print, were available for guests to preview. To find out more about this signed limited edition and place your order, visit
