    Then throw in "Beware Mr Baker"

    I enjoyed all of those.

    I think part of the reason for heir success--as pointed out--was they were a unit--they played well together and they knew that--the Whole was greater than the sum of the parts.

    I take bass lessons at Counts music in Muscle Shoals. Bob Wray worked with Candy and many other musicians and he still does. Super nice guy very humble his pictures in the Music Hall of Fame down here so that really says something.

    I got invited to a private preview at a local movie theater a couple weeks before it was released. On the big screen with a killer sound system it was truly amazing.
