When I was a teenager, a radio station in Pittsburgh, PA (WDVE) used to play this song every Saturday night at midnight. I have grooved to it many times, but not for a very long time.

I think Black Sabbath may have borrowed elements of that 6 note underpinning riff for "Fluff".

The kind of guitar fuckery that you can just get lost in.

Some of the best guitar soloing ever recorded. Period.

Interesting! I'll have to go back and listen to 'Fluff' later.

This song should have been a half hour long as far as I'm concerned.

Have to admit, I haven't heard any of the rest of the album before. At least not that I can remember.

The little bit around the 6-7 minute mark where Hazel has his own private little hoe-down is quietly joyous, and then he explodes with the gorgeous loud playing.
