This was my theme song! Great song! Great lyricist. Thank you, Sly!
Sad! He Lives in a Class C RV! Parks in Residential Streets over nite.
Maybe the most innovative influence of his era and beyond, yet so unrecognized for their contribution to the music scene of the 60s. I'm nearly 60 now and still groove to their sound!
Still The Stuff!!
THIS MAN IS LEGEND!!!!-S O O O GOOOD!- NOTHING LIKE IT TODAY!!!
Brilliance! - Love it!!!
Nice, long forgotten Sly song. I think his later period was his best, despite his ever increasing absences and odd behavior.
Check out Bernard Allison's cover of this tune. Did Sly proud.
