Oh, that's great. Just recently read a long profile of producer/arranger/composer etc David Axelrod in WaxPoetics magazine. He and Lou worked together on a lot of great records.

This is also so much better than the Blood,Sweat & Tears version. David Clayton Thomas is a pretty annoying singer, especially when he tries to get "funky".

There is something so vulnerable in his phrasing. Beautiful version.

[1] Agreed re: DCT. If memory serves, that first Blood, Sweat & Tears album, "Child is Father To The Man," when it was still an Al Kooper project, is pretty hot, though.
