So awesome. This was played right after Peter Gun. It served as a great intro. Wonderful to hear this again. It has aged well. Hard to believe it's from the '70s.

Does this album ever run out of hits? This is as good or better than most Greatest Hits albums.

I agree that Supertramp was one of the better bands around, but so underrated, they were cool.

Great harmonica. Easy to understand. Easy to sing along with. And wow what a great ending to a song.

I dedicate this song to Kid C, who upon hearing it remarked “he has a high voice just like you, Daddy.”
