buddy miles: down by the river

them changes.

An absolutely stunning cover of the Neil Young standard by the late Buddy Miles, drummer and vocalist with Electric Flag and - more famously - with Jimi's Band of Gypsies. A collaborator, too, with the great Carlos Santana. This cut also features Miles on guitar.

I do not recall where this vinyl rip originally hails from, but it is certainly worth sharing of a late sunny Sunday afternoon.

I'm keen to hear the bright, shiny remastered take on this, though.

BUDDY MILES: DOWN BY THE RIVER from "Them Changes" LP (Mercury) 1970 (US)
