Sometimes a song gets stuck in your head... for me at the moment it's Blind Faith's Can't Find My Way Home, in various guises, courtesy of YouTube

For jazz piano enthusiasts:

Christian Sands Trio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngjAyVCKjtw (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngjAyVCKjtw), I love his head shake when someone shouts/claps early in the song, presumably when they recognise the tune   :)

and something slightly different:

I do think that Blind Faith album would have been a masterpiece had they had a couple of extra songs that matched the quality of the others that would have allowed them to dispense with Do What You Like.

I think Ginger Baker's drumming on the Hyde Park version of that song is superb.
