Looking all around me what do I see
Lots of changing faces and lots of things to be
But I'm happy just to be a part of all I see
As I turn round to look at you
And you look back at me

There isn't time to hang around
Anymore
So fill your heart with lovin'
And open up the door
Someone's calling out to you
And that's what love is for
As I turn round to look at you
And you look back no more

I'm feelin' up
I'm feelin' down
My head's been twisted
All around
But now my feet
Are on the ground
For everyone to see

There's many ways to reach you
Though you're far away
All the little things we do
The little things we say
I miss you like I miss the sun
I need you every day
As I turn round to look at you
And you look back my way

Looking all around me what do I see
Lots of changing faces and lots of things to be
But I'm happy just to be a part of all I see
As I turn round to look at you
And you look back at me

I'm feelin' up
I'm feelin' down
My head's been twisted
All around
But now my feet
Are on the ground
For everyone to see

if you just listen to the guitar work...it's quite good. And so is the recording; no over production, very clean.   
It just hit me: I don't think I ever heard anyone else cover this song. 

Perfect song for today, Friday afternoon.

"I'm just happy to be,
Part of all I see".

Now that's a tombstone phrase!

Yep, that's one "mediocre wedding band" for sure!

No way, if they hired this band.
A great album from start to finish.
Still some of the finest RnR guitar work.

And recorded well.

Fantastic music from 47 fucking years ago man still awesome  : )
Yeah baby!

Nice Christmas/holiday present!

I wish I was driving country roads, around snow covered fields, see Christmas lights in the distance, dotting the landscape. 

Uh oh...I think I'm back into "Along the Watchtower"!

Good beach band.
Decent bar band.
Mediocre wedding band that nobody would remember the following week.

How many late 60s songs still sound this fresh in 2017? Clearly this is one listeners' opinion, but this was a staple of FM radio (called underground at the time, which says something about the state of radio at the time!) and still compels a listen. Radio Paradise is the closest entity to the free-form low power radio stations of that era that exists, as far as I know. And I don't need to be within 50 miles or (much) less of the transmitter to listen.
The guitar solo at the end could go on like that for ever. Absolutely outstanding!

Absolutely some of the best, most highly inspired guitar jamming here! Heck, half of Traffic is on this! Really does send my mind aloft!
A perfect remedy for the mind blown 1960s.
Please no more references to Watchtower. 

I just read a freakin essay o the meaning of the song: metaphors, symbolism, who was the joker? who was the thief? The end of the world!!!   
Geez, it's just a freakin song, by a Nobel prize winner.   
And dang, was he good!
