John Poole has graciously sent me a private message pointing out that this track features Jeff Bleedin' Beck, rather than Eric Bleedin' Clapton.

I feel much better knowing that I've enjoyed something that involved a guitarist whose mockney drawl was the inspiration for Spinal Tap's Nigel Tufnell, rather than one whose pissed bigotry was the inspiration for Rock Against Racism.

Was this one ever on RSG? It ought to have been. Anyway, it's on here.....

THAT riff! Was this the first use of it? Maybe this can be this week's "Dixie" theme?

Something from The Yardbirds last week, a song from Cream this week. All bow before me, for I am the New King of Dad Rock (OK, it's a cover version really)

I can only hang on to your coat tails, Jamie, and post Ella's version of the same song.

Taj Mahal's version was the first time I heard this and, yes, the riff is the same as 'Keep On Running'*:

Duh! Sorry: you're right of course. Getting my riffs/SDG hits mixed up (but Ali seems to have been guilty of the same mistake too.)

More weekend vibes*
Read the song's title backwards to find out from whom the tune was nicked.

* On second thoughts, that should probably read "Mo' weekend vibes"

I see there's talk of the Beach Boys elsewhere on the forum, so thought I'd start the weekend with their finest moment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLV4NGpoy_E
