    Yes, please!

    the harmonica! Very delicious...

    And what is that low growl sound? Baritone sax? Contrabass sax? Does anyone know?

    Saw them in the 60’s. Long Beach Arena? My first, and a most memorable, concert. They were fantastic. I think Blood Rock opened for them.

    IMO it absolutely is. It's a good song, but it's the performance that makes or breaks it.
