    Wishing Well has a good, memorable riff that gets stuck in my head every time I hear any version of the song. I consider it an instance in which the riff is better than the other components of the composition and lyrics. Several major acts recorded it and/or covered it in live performances.

    Who had the best version?

    Blackfoot

    Blackfoot's version is definitely a "hotter" rendition.

    Blackfoot's version is a really, really good bar band cover of Free's. Free is the one all others are compared to.....and, so far, all fall short.

    Yeah, I thought of TTD's tune when I saw the thread title.
