Not enough Traffic played. Not enough Steve Winwood played. Not enough Jim Capaldi played.
I second that emotion

Great band and good old memories. I am still a sucker for Winwoods voice and not forgetting the later stuff Jim Capaldi did solo

This whole album is splendid! I think maybe John Martyn's best work.
It is. Simply it is his best work by far.
At the time this was being made John M was the cause of me getting banned from my favorite local pub when he grabbed a sax my pal was carrying and tried it out; I am glad he stuck to guitar after that episode

Ska in 1967?
The first time I recall ska being big in the UK was around '68/'69. The Two Tone explosion was like the second coming really. It was very much the adopted music of the then emerging skinhead movement. Being a bit of a biker at the time, I had to avoid many of the local youth clubs where this and similar music was played lots. I must have been an odd biker for I have always loved ska and reggae!

Never really paid attention to the Screaming Trees before.
Parts of this song remind me of Neil Young's Heart of Gold... is it my imagination?
I wondered what was familiar in this song, then I read your post below.
I am sorry that I missed out picking up on them before; but much thanks to RP for giving me the chance to catch up at last.

It's all about America, isn't it? Why would anyone think I was aiming that AT someone? I was clear, I thought, that I was glad that *I* am not of the US ilk. Got nothin' against nobody....just hate the idea of guns = security.
Great song with loads of relevance today as it had when it was written.
I lived in Brixton in the early 80s so this song brings back some not so pleasant memories
Thanks to oldsaxon for reminding us that guns are not a solution to security

|A great track from an excellent CD
Who cares where this album's influences come from? It all adds up to creating a welcome new tonic for the ears. Keep up the great work RP and YB

Brings back great memories of the opening number from early Genesis concerts (circa 1972/3), with Gabriel glaring out at the audience in full costume - see Live album for nice shot of that typical over-the-top getup that Garbiel favored at the time. Lots of old Genesis to upload, much of which is grades above this nice though not overly impressive song. After all, early Genesis (after the awful "From Genesis to Revelation" premier) had lots of fun stuff, from Trespass, Foxtrot, Live and Selling England by the Pound. Have a craving to hear 'Muscial Box' now, so have to go find it in my archves.
BTW - the Charisma pressings (UK) of the early vinyl were great (no warpage issues).
Thanks for bringing back fond memories.
I recall being involved in booking the early and original Genesis twice for college gigs, both were some of the best I have attended.
Now to dig out those old albums for some more memories.

|Over exposed, smugness and public school toffs may well be true.
But I still enjoy most of the songs from this album, especially from a musical perspective, this is not one of the better tracks though.

|This is not the best track from the album; Train is my favorite, but this one is pretty good all the same.|
I have to thank RP for introducing me and my credit card to this excellent album
