My favorite song from the “Three Friends” album and my earworm of the week... After all these years of being so familiar with this track, I am still thrilled and moved by it, and fascinated by its construction and production. The tune is almost like a work chant. I especially love the funky ol’ sax chorus (bass, or baritone pitched down to bass?) and the evocative, image-conveying instrumental section in 6/8, built as a three-part cycle – I lack the vocabulary here... With that melancholic alto sax riff in the distance, balanced as it is in the response from the grinding bass sax... And the whirling organ soloing along the day’s toil in the dusty afternoon... Then the verse comes rocking back again, giving way finally to the sleepy redemption of the little lullaby from the introduction. I just might be reading way too much into this, but it’s kind of perfect program music to me, the likes of which you don’t hear very often in rock... I wonder if it was intended that way, to tell a little story? What do you say, Gentle Giant fans?
