    Jay Ferguson was one of the original members of Spirit, the amazing band from 1967 featuring Randy California, who was named such by Jimi Hendrix when they hung out for a short time. Recall Led Zeppelin toured with Spirit and thus the controversy over the Stairway to Heaven intro section sounding similar to Taurus.

    Somehow stumbled upon this and remembered back in the day when it actually hit the FM radio ways. It is basically a pop song but if you listen carefully it is quite brilliant in terms of song structure and instrumentation.
