    If you play this to an indie rock fanatic he won't know it came from 1970 unless you tell him. He would also admit it kicks Wilco's ass. Great album, the Pretties couldn't top it till Cross Talk.

    Inexplicably neglected album - it's sort of like 'Abbey Road' but with better drugs

    I adore this track, one of my favourites of all time. It's from a great great album that time has not let the ears of the world hear enough.
