    It's buried away in my stack somewhere, but I had not heard on the radio in years. What a great example of timeless blues song. Barbra Blue from Memphis public radio spun it up. She plays great seldom heard music.

    Yes!!! From Boz Scaggs' first solo album; one of my all time favorites. It's been in my collection through vinyl, cassette, CD & iTunes. This track, plus "I'm Easy", "Sweet Release", "Waiting For A Train"....all recorded at Muscle Shoals studios. Super tight playing from The Swampers and every track is a winner.

    Addendum: the track above features some fabulous (and instantly recognizable) slide playing by Duane Allman, and this album was released only a couple of months before the Allman Brothers Band's first album. And oops, this was Boz' second solo album, not his first.

    It always sounded to me like Duane used a Strat on this track, rather than one of his signature Gibsons. Remember when FM radio would actually play a 13 min. track?
