    Great song. I always wondered what happened to them. I should read up I guess...

    You can tell it's a British show with the drummer up front. That was a 70s thing I guess.

    I agree 100%.

    I learned it almost as soon as this song came out, and when you play it, and don't make any mistakes, it impresses people.

    Our band covers this song. Universally popular, due to appearance in various movies.

    Gerry was another who passed too young. Baker's St of course everyone knows but he loved a bit of slide, harmonica and great Irish lilt to vocals. Tasteful banjo even!

    He was in a band with Billy Connolly called The Stumblebums.



    Check out the masterclass in bass in this one

    Even if it's canned, nice vocal version.
