It never fails, at the beginning of this great jam I am only going 70 mph…….by the end I am damn near 100 and have to slow back down. This song is like catnip to me. Reply Unsung Heroes – true, gospel Reply Saw Steve Morse (the hot guitarist you hear) perform with John McLaughlin, Al Dimeola, and Paco DeLucia (Boulder, Co. circa 1989). They were probably THE four hottest guitarists ever to have been on stage performing together. Reply Just bought a mint copy of this album on vinyl for$3.Not disappointed Reply I got more than one speeding ticket listening to this song back in the day. Reply I literally just found out about these guys! This is awesome! Reply great stuff Reply dat bass line ! Reply Tomorrow night, March 1st 2018 at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, I will be there with the biggest smile on my face! The original lineup. It's been decades! Reply One of the BEST bass lines EVER laid down! Reply Don't remember exactly what years, but it was early 80's when I saw this band twice. Once at "My Father's Place" in Roslyn, NY, and again at, of all places, Mayfest on the SUNY Albany, NY campus! I'll never forget standing right up in front of the stage at Mayfest (they actually had David Crosby there one year, and U2!!) watching a shirtless Steve Morse's long blond hair blowing in the warm breeze! I was close enough to watch his fingers move on the guitar and man, just one of the most unforgettable experiences of my life. Reply BACK ON TOUR 2018 !! Reply won't get to see them tho, tour doesn't include Puerto Rico, did get to see them in N.Y. about 35 years ago still have all their lps on vinyl Reply This was their encore last night when I saw them live, what a show! 2 blistering sets, everyone was in top form but Morse blew us all away! Reply This music is so real and badass! Yahoo! Reply Cruise Control , my foot !!! That is wide- ass open ! ! ! Dregs not only rocked – they FUNK ROCKED FUSHIONED ! (**) Reply El sueño es de quien lucha por tenerlo Reply I remember this was the theme song for WWF Championship Wrestling back in the early 80s. Reply This is still the best song I have ever heard ..crank it up! Reply Someone has covered this but I can't remember who it was. Anyone? Reply Saw these guys back in 1980 at the Agora Ballroom in Atlanta. This is one of my favorites by them. Reply WWF Championship Wrestling theme from 1981-1984. Reply Best Atl band. as teenish (1980) .. caught them in a HS Gym in Atl. blew my mind.. Love. Still. Always. Reply This band was forever respected by all the musicians in the funk-rock/jazz fusion world but never got the notoriety they deserved from the media and record-buying public… a total shame. I saw them play live several times at the Golden Bear (since torn down for a mall-on-the-pier) in Huntington Beach, CA in the the late 70's… good times they were. Reply Got to see these guys in 1978, wow they were like nothing I had seen before or since. Steve is my hero… Reply I was lucky enough to see them live once. It was earth changing! Reply BTW, you don't hear many covers of this! I wonder how many bands could play it? Reply I came here looking for copper and found gold.
