We recorded this song in about 20 minutes. Suddenly one of the musicians announced he had to go but we convinced him to stay for a few more minutes.
Have always loved this tune and wanted to try it a little differently with a shuffle for fun … but we had never ever played the song together before.
So I shouted out instructions as best I could until Al started counting us in.
We played it through once and it came off not bad … couple of mistakes.
Quickly called out where we went wrong as Al stated counting us in again.
And that was it! … hard to believe we got what we got … the organ is stunning!
A comment on just how good these players are … never cease to amaze me.
We overdubbed the background vocals later … a fun song … hope you enjoy.
