    I think the best version is Otis Redding wowing 'em at Monterrey Pop with this and "Shake." However 3DN do quite well on this cover.

    I know this isn't their song, nor is it the best version I've ever heard, but it's good, very good.

    Several artist have nailed this one, but I remember learning all about tenderness listening to this one on 8 track while watching the moon rise. Seems to me that life was just a little bit sweeter back then - even with all the war and things going on. We still looked for and found happiness...

    Good vocals in any live version are hard to get, but they are excellent in this song. I really dug this song right out of the gate and it only seemed to get better.
