I really like this....blues, big band and blistering guitar all together!Stacey - Houston, Tx
This track was part of a song cycle that oldpink refers to called "The Man and The Journey" (often separated as "The Man" and "The Journey"). The cycle included known pieces such as 'Eugene' and 'Cymbeline' mixed with custom-built tracks like this one. It was Part 4 of "The Man" titled, "Afternoon"

I always have liked this piece, the ONLY one that features a bandmember (Rick) playing a trombone!
It is also interesting that the studio recording of it was put down on tape on the same day they did it live in Amsterdam.
Oh, the complete Amsterdam gig (over an hour) is available as a full soundboard through "unofficial" channels, if you know what I'm saying, and I think you do.

A great song, one of their best '60s tunes, even though it's a little more generic sounding than most other songs. Excellent solo at the end.Bryan - New York, Ny
Yeah, not even close to Comfortably Numb... this song is catchy but its only a novelty to post Atom heart Mother Floyd.Steveb - Spokane, Wa
This song was featured in the promotional radio commercial for the Relics album in '71. It's referred to as one of the "newer" tunes on the compilation - "See Emily Play" being cited as one of the "old" tunes.Ryan - Plano, Tx
great piece...i love how it has that soft subtle feel just before it picks up into the solo...awesome...Jared - Westmont, Nj
in no way does it rival the comfortably numb soloSully - Clinton, Ma
The drums at the end with the guitar solo is cool too.Andrew - Toronto
