Just retrieved this masterpiece from the purgatory of my storage space, and I went straight for “Motorcycle Man”, a small gem of a song, one of my favorites of all time.

John Simon produced Music from Big Pink and The Band (among many, many others) and Danko and Manual provide the rhythm section here.

Imagine if Nilsson and Paul Simon and Van Dyke Parks cut a record together, that’s what this sounds like.
