Hey! Thanks for responding! I agree with most of your picks, also. Glad you chose Grand Funk for Gimme Shelter and The Youngbloods for Darkness, Darkness. Wasn't sure if very many people ever heard Foghat's live version of Sweet Home Chicago. I kinda like what other artists do with songs normally associated with the original or more popular bands. Wish someone would do something with Freebird and Stairway to Heaven! Ooops----sorry!
