    That's awesome. Nice to see an old school chum, John Cruz, at 2:04. Great singer, best nylon string player around.

    Great post of a terrific video, thanks warrant. That's one I'll keep on hand for those days when some positive vibes are needed. "Feelin' down friend?...Break glass and push play!" ;)

    Damn, had to wipe the tears from my eyes!
    I've been singing that song for probably 50 years, and I gotta say they did it justice where they could easily have gone so wrong with that sort of project.

    Was about to post the same clip!
    I've seen Playing For Change a few times and they are absolutely joyous. The special guests here are an excellent bonus.

    On occasions like this, one might hope that things will turn out OK after all.
