I feel ya!  I'm giving a 9 (10s are special) which is pretty much the same as a 10 for me, the only main difference being that a 10-song and I have some sort of history together.  That being said, the reason I have limited history with this awesome track is that most "classic rock" stations wont play it at 6:31 in length, although I can probably get it for the 'Drive @ 5' on KZOK today after-work.

What an under rated band.

Traffic & Steely Dan.

Boy, I would have loved to catch that tour.

The album's title is actually:" As The Eagle Flies", a great piece of 1974 music.

The music these guys did was so different from what the other bands did. Lots of various influences. The flute work and parts by Chris Wood really set this band apart. So did Steve Winwood's voice...

this hungry man was minutes ago in a classy (meaning: not sloppy) bbq joint where Stevie Wonder's "You haven't heard Nothin" was playing, oh so super cool, and then this classic piece comes to fill my senses!  Love it

These gentlemen conveyed so much within their spare arrangements.  Perhaps because of the 'space' in their music, one finds the ability to really appreciate each musician's skill and contribution to the whole.  Each of their albums still sounds good today.

Stated another way, the bass work in this ancient piece is a fabulous example of early funk/ska/reggae, and isn't it nice that the drums and piano don't overwhelm it?

Good Lord, this was overflowingly great when it came out and still stands as quite a masterpiece, I'd say! Reminds me of times we'd sit around enlightening ourselves with tunes like this and immersing our minds in fully-bent discussion of them — instead of the Calculus and Physics we were supposed to be studying! — and such are diversions that continue to this day to pay far better dividends for the effort!

One of my very favorite songs. I remember listening to this on KIKI in Honolulu in the mid 70's when they were a reasonably free form AM station.  Another great song they played was Van Morrison Autumn Song.
Thanks for playing this, it brings back pleasant memories.
