Thanks! That's a great version too, but I'm not fond of the Hit-Of-The-Week format. I do like it though....

Interestingly enough... I do have a spare copy of this by Joel Shaw on Crown, with a "Bob Dixon" vocal. Gene Kardos is playing AS in the band, and guess who "Bob Dixon" is. Flip side is "Sweet Violets". PM if interested. This is very, VERY likely the same band, using Shaw as leader to get around contracts as was the usual practice then.
