I hope he credits Leonard Cohen for all the lines he "borrows" from Bird on a Wire.

Thank you. Hugh McCracken was among the finest studio session players around. He definitely captured that sound that Harrison was mostly known for. I really like the range and diversity of music you post. Not just the same old familiar stuff, but things that deserved more attention than they received at the time they were released. Best wishes to you.

+Pauline Lievens thanks for the update. Love sharing the music. I should post a few of my old favorites that can't be found here.

I've heard every cover of this I could find, from the Association to Jennifer Warnes and several anonymous groups in between. None of them come close to Jim's original or his remake. This is one of his compositions that he really owns. Should have been a hit.

Anyone know the credits on this? That guitar sounds an awful lot like George Harrison's style. I had only ever heard The Promise Suite from this album. I like this even better.
