  • Stacey from Houston, TxI really like this....blues, big band and blistering guitar all together!
  • Terry from Wickford, RiThis 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"

  • Oldpink from New Castle, InI 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.

  • Bryan from New York, NyA 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.
  • Steveb from Spokane, WaYeah, not even close to Comfortably Numb... this song is catchy but its only a novelty to post Atom heart Mother Floyd.
  • Ryan from Plano, TxThis 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.
  • Jared from Westmont, Njgreat piece...i love how it has that soft subtle feel just before it picks up into the solo...awesome...
  • Sully from Clinton, Main no way does it rival the comfortably numb solo
  • Andrew from TorontoThe drums at the end with the guitar solo is cool too.
  • Tony from St Louis, Mothe guitar solo at the end rivals confortably numb
