Just recently rediscovered this song, after seeing the flyer for the BB's Jones Beach show posted in the main forum. Always loved it as a kid. I can see why BW was inspired by it. Thanks to Joel Koster for his awesome Gold Star Chamber reverb impulse.

Great cover, I'll have to go back and re-listen to the original as I don't recall enjoying it as much as I enjoyed your version.

Thanks, man! The original's great, definitely check it out. John Sebastian's voice was so good. And supposedly the song inspired "God Only Knows".

I've never heard the song (or really that much of anything from Lovin' Spoonful) but love the cover, which I was fully expecting. Then again, I'm always a sucker for I - III progressions.

Thanks, dude! I agree, that chord progression hits you right in the gut.  There's something so vibey about the original. It's very haunting in a way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbwmolF8M7o

Here's a few other good songs by them, some of which you've probably heard:

Great cover! I'd like to hear you sing some more Sebastian - your voice suits the song so well.

I'm a big Lovin' Spoonful fan. Here are a few more good ones:

I think that's true, Brian used to list Sebsatian as one of his favorite singers/songwriter along with McCartney and a couple others  Smiley
