    When I get stuck on a groove going round and round stuck on the familiar of hmmph boring
    like the not so immaculate marriage of a Ferris Wheel and a Merry Go Round.
    yeah it's inspirational for me.

    My favorite song by The Captain and his crew. This is the version off of "Ice Cream For Crow" (the 1971 or 72 version off of the "The Spotlight Kid Outakes" album sounds too much like bad reggae for my tastes). It's nice and manic sounding to me, and is fun to play on guitar!

    I got to hear the Magic Band live at a venue (Main Event?) in East Providence back in the early 80s. Truly inspirational. Unique and fabulous. Bulbous!
    I could never write or play that stuff, but Lord amighty...
    What a ride!
