    Short sweet and tasteful, IMHO at about 2:50 if you want to skip ahead, but these were a great group who played for the song and the band egos in check and the whole thing is just kickin'

    David Hood's great little solo on a top 40 hit by the Staple Singers, "I'll Take You There"

    and "You Can Call Me Al" by Paul Simon with the cool birthday present for Bakithi Kumalo- except they flipped the tape and the record has that solo backwards.
