  • Lyrics
  • This song, dedicated to guitarist Roy Buchanan, was composed by longtime friend Stevie Wonder as an apology to Jeff for releasing "Superstition" first. This is what Beck is referring to in the liner notes on the back of the album when he says, "thanks to Stevie." >>

  • Jorge from Bronx, NyThis album came to by working in MSG here in NYC,whoever it belonged to,left two crates of rock LP's this was one,wow i was impressed,this song,Freeway jam and Constipated Duck were my favorites.
  • Ken from Fort Collins, CoActually, I believe it was first sung on the album "Stevie Wonder presents Syreeta" which came out in 1974. Jeff Beck then included the song on the album of the same name as the haunting instrumental that has become even more famous.
  • Ron from Los Angeles, CaYou got it half right Bill. Stevie Wonder wrote the song originally for his ex-wife Syreeta for an album (a very personal one for them) and her version was never released. The song does have lyrics to it too. Stevie wrote Thelonius Funk for Jeff on the Blow by Blow album too.
  • Adrian from Brookings, SdAwesome song on an even more awesome album that's top five of all time in my opinion. I was hardcore into the album when I was 13 and oddly enough had this song stuck in my head the entire time my family and I were vacationing in Disney World. Completely unrelated I'm sure, but still interesting to no one else but me. ;-)
  • Goldfish from , Wiabsolutely gorgeous solo that tells all the story. needs no lyrics
