The time genre of Rock was popular was very short lived. For a long time it was looked on with as much disdain as Prog Rock had until recently. I saw this band with both Al Kooper and then later with David Clayton Thomas. A Canadian who was with them when they had their biggest hits and someone I met a few times in the old Toronto bar band scene. I love Al Kooper's lyrics here.

Hope you all forgive me this indulgence just one more great tunes by David Wiffen. It harkens back to time, for me, when I was making coast to coast runs with the thumb and then my Norton C!
This the David Wiffen that I knew in early 70's and thought there would be a great musical future for him. He's just such a great voice and a great interpreter of songs.
Alas, such was not the case, he had a few more releases, retired from the biz for a long time tried again in the late 80's and then gave it up for good. Richard Flohil and I were reminiscing about him just a few months ago in our great Paris meet up. We both sighed over it.
David Wiffen just one of the great Folk voices in Canada who doesn't tour
or do appearences any more! But, again, I was lucky enough to see him live several times in Ottawa.
Kind of Jerry Jeff Walker voice but with more colour.
I was in love with Moma Cass's voice and she was such a wild chile too....my kinda gal!
