Time is overdue to finish this quiz.
Answers.
1, The Days of Pearly Spencer - David McWilliams.


Even features a touch a harpsichord, and a soaring string section behind the chorus.
2. Swoodley answered.
3. Long Cool Woman (in a Black Dress) - The Hollies.


Features prominently and early in the new Kong Skull Island movie.
4. Tonight Will Be Fine - Leonard Cohen.

Here is a live version from the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970, this one contains an extra verse or few, and is my favourite version. Somewhere between country and folk.
5. Let’s Work Together - Canned Heat.

I saw them at the Mulwalla festival around 1973, when Stephen Stills and Manassas topped the bill. Stills was ghostly white when he played, looked like he was smacked out, but they were a hot band, much better than CSN&Y.
