I know so many I don’t know which one of them to dedicate this to, including myself!
This was a rarity that Ian Anderson did a song in which he or the band didn’t write but what an awesome cover of Roland Kirk.
In fact if you excuse the pun the band as a whole put more than enough english on it to make this song even better. I love this early Tull and how they took a blues & jazz start then evolved into such a powerhouse progressive rock band.
They just got better and better as they went along.
I dedicate this song for all the skaters at Camp Martius and the upcoming Motown Winter BLAST next weekend in Downtown Detroit.

Now if there is anytime I hope it pours snow. It is beautiful down there with the rink, fountain and lights. Was down there several years when it was snowing away, I felt like a kid again. And believe me we all need that once in a while.
So let this song be a reminder for your plans.
