An evening pause: There are some riffs that will always be remembered, even more than the song, even if the song is good. And this definitely applies to the sax solo here.

Hat tip Danae.

    This one of my ALL-TIME-OF-ALL-TIME favorite songs!!! It reminds me of being 15yrs old and working at a local gas station! The owner loved this song and every time it was played we’d get a free soda. The album is one of a few that I had in every available media. I have it in 8-track, LP, cassette, and CD. Thank you for this ‘new take’ on an amazing song!
