Taste - "It's Happened Before, It'll Happen Again"

Been thinking about On the Boards, the second album by Taste, the band Rory Gallagher led after jumping out of Irish showbands and into the rock world. I can actually say I got hip to Rory via a review St. Lester penned for Rolling Stone in which he lauded the Irishman's sax playing on this track, writing, "we have needed a rock saxist with the inspiration and facility to blow something besides garbled 'free' shit." Take that, Steve Mackay. Seriously, this was probably the best jazz-rock to originate in Those Isles besides Blodwyn Pig.
