    I really like this song, not as much as "Old World", or "Pablo Picasso". but it is a great melancholy sounding song. It also reminds me of some of The Door's stuff.

    The bassline soudns very close to some Deep Purple song so I guess they copied that too.

    a total VU thing going on. This became a template for the early East Coast punk sound. A great recording.

    Their first LP came out in 74' but there is a demo of She Cracked from 1972 that is actually a little more aggressive than the released version. They are the innovators.

That had WAY more of an effect. I mean, she cracked INVENTED the FORWARD D
