It reminds me, in so many ways, of a girl I knew very well in the early 70s and the ending to this song is so poignant and SO-oo full of yearning that when I listen, I can feel the deep chasm of time closing in on me. THIS JAM, from 1994, is the odd one out in my series ( which focuses on the period '67 - '74 ) but it fits in SO well that I just HAD to include it & I'm sure I would've LOVED this one back in my 'cloud-gazing' days ( as seen in avatar)..........(or was it 'cow-gazing' days? )   37
