    One hit wonder as far as I know but I always loved the solo in this one.

    Not only extremely obscure, but features the most interesting lead guitar ever recorded.

    Another obscure soul tune, Mandala - Give and Take. Domenic Troiano played guitar in this band.



    And this is the B side of that record, it's called From Toronto '67

    Jimmy Loves Mary-Anne; For a top 40 tune of it's era, this one's got a few moments...you may hear why Donald Fagen was considering him as vocalist for Steely Dan.

    Always liked this garage-psych nugget from '67... This is a stereo mix which I'd never heard until today!

    I've always enjoyed this, especially the backing guitar parts. "Love Child is Coming Home," by Larry Coryell.

    A tune from the late 70’s from a band with some former members of Allman Bros.

    Sea Level – That’s your secret



    A laid back track from Genesis just prior to Steve Hackett leaving the band.

    Genesis – Afterglow

    This isn't a song, but I can't understand why it has got so few youtube hits compared with other more recent versions. The lament that starts at 4:00 brings tears to my eyes after the wildness of the preceding movement.

    The Fox Chase, as played by Finbar Furey:
