My very 1st concert back in ’82 during my Jr. yr. I seen these dudes with
Eddie Money in Bristol Tn. They must have played this song for almost 10
minutes and 32 years later it is my humble opinion its the most under rated
song by an under rated band. TY for U/L this ! Have a good day peeps !

with the first time I heard this song along with the band 38 Special. I
love the entire CD or should I say cassette….. Thanks for the post Mark

never find the studio version…. You just made my day..

Thanks again,

GrooveDoctor77 says:

I do know the guitarist of 38 Special, Don Barnes was the lead vocalist on
many 38 Specials best songs….and really the primary songwriter of this
great band ….a very underated guitarist/vocalist/songwriter
