Yes.

Quiet Joys of Brotherhood is superb but not as good, in my opinion, to the version on Denny's solo album Sandy

Stunning vocals

Moved on to a John Peel’s Top Gear version from 1969 with Sandy on vocals also.

This is double the length of the version on Sandy

This version takes one somewhere else....

The drone

Great album, great company. Thanks everyone. Have a good weekend. I have a jam session to attend tonight so I’ll be off to a good start even if weekends don’t have the same meaning. Someone asked me last night if I had weekend plans. I said I don’ t think in terms of weekends anymore. If something can be done, it will be done. :D

i had a dream about reap the other night. i was walking across a field, lookin for him, and i found him. he was playing golf. (he did used to play time and again, back in ohio.) the funny thing was: he was wearing like an outfit from the 1920s or some damn thing. reap, mister tee shirt and jeans. just smiling away, with the silliest outfit, mwhaha.

i'm really not all that well in the brainpan.

I am away camping in East Sussex. I mentioned in passing during voting that I may be prevented technologically from joining in, which was what happened. Glad you all had a good time!
