I still keep on gagging for the band to drive the song further after the fade out hits.... So electric....

Sad - a great talent

Ah - knew they were Baker/Taylor comps but know nothing of Taylor. Thanks.


Sorry that should read: drowned in the Thames...!

It takes me back to 1968 and the excitement I felt the first time of hearing it

52 years ago - what the fucque…?!!

Bruce's walking bass line in between verses is groovy, literally.

I keep on being reminded of the Moodies through Rat and Warthog....just imagining Ray Thomas quoting poetry with the band freestyling behind him.

It's OK but not the best part.

Politician - perhaps one of Jack's greatest compositions

Folks have you seen/heard the live version of Jack with Rory Gallagher - superb!!!

Love the bass/guitar interplay on this - Ginger anchors it so well with that groove too. Very solid/less-is-more. One of his more restrained performances, for those who think he can't do it.

They're all like 99% on the beat - off just enough to give it that loose feel.

Great as this production/version is, I prefer the live take on Goodbye - more attack & vehemence.
