Overview

Short Cut Draw Blood/The Contender (Daughter of the Night) is a double-disc collection combining former Traffic member Jim Capaldi's 1975 and 1978 albums. These are engaging rock, soft rock, disco, and jazz-rock fusion albums showcasing Capaldi's soulful voice. Released in 1975, Short Cut Draw Blood was Capaldi's third studio effort and first after leaving Traffic. Musically, it is somewhat of a diverse collection, with Capaldi moving from the moody Big Star-sounding soft rock of "It's All Up to You" to a cover of the pop standard "Love Hurts" and the Santana-esque cinematic noir rock of "Boy with a Problem." Issued in 1978, The Contender -- released in the U.S. as Daughter of the Night with a slightly modified track listing -- is also somewhat stylistically diverse, with Capaldi delving into the steamy blue-eyed disco number "Daughter of the Night," the driving and funky "Good Love," and the epic, boxer-themed title track. A carry-over from the soundtrack Capaldi recorded for a film of the same name, "The Contender" is a forgotten would-be-classic anthem for the everyman that brings to mind the similarly inclined work of Jimmy Webb and Randy Newman. That song, as well as all the bonus material included here, makes picking this collection well worth it.
