Enjoying a lovely iced tea with a large wedge of freshly sliced lemon.

Does life get much better than this?

Well, let's hope so. But that's beside the point. Tonight - great tunes, good mates, nice bevvy.

Many a night spent in my bedroom learning these songs on guitar back in high school. I think Funk #49 was one of the first I tackled after learning the technique of bar chords.

You're not wrong C!

Just checking from Wiki

On the initial pressings of James Gang Rides Again, a 1:25 electric rendition of Maurice Ravel's "Boléro" is interpolated into the song "The Bomber." Ravel's estate threatened suit against both the James Gang and ABC Records for its unauthorized use. As a result, the track was edited, and the "Boléro" section was removed on most subsequent pressings of the album. The edited song's running time on such pressings is 5:39. Some late 1970s LP pressings included "Boléro" by mistake, and the most recent CD re-issue of Rides Again contains the full version of "The Bomber," with the "Boléro" section restored.

Meyer lemons from your own tree comes to mind. They smell so wonderful when they are just picked.

I suspect Cream were a pretty big influence. They were on a lot of people, of course, but I think this album is a logical "next step beyond" in a way the others didn't quite get to.

Not just raw power - there's some real melodicism underneath - and it's really playful rhythmically.
