I'm sure many other people will be here for a folk rock classic, including the hit Werewolves of London, (featuring Fleetwood Mac's Mick Fleetwood and John McVie). That's all there - think a keyboard playing Bruce Springsteen, (who he often collaborated with).
However, I was bought her by the super tough groove of Nighttime In The Switching Yard. White funk never sounded so good. As tight a groove as an Average White band smash, but also disco paced, (think early Prince), with a punk/rock inflexion that wouldn't sit out of place next to a Talking Heads track, and folk harmonies that would sit with a Crosby, Stills, and Nash.
Play on vinyl to get full punch of crisp production and let it build. Nice.
