Traffic at the Santa Monica, CA Civic Center 2/21/72 and the only concert video from back in the day.


Rainmaker, rainmaker
The sky is gray just by the touch of your hand
Rainmaker, rainmaker
Make me some rain, make all my crops grow tall

Rainmaker, rainmaker
The sky is gray, the ground is so hard
It's been cracked by the sun
Rainmaker, you know my work's never done

Were these guys terrific or what? Does anyone play rock n' roll like this 40 years later? How these guys managed to get so far into the stratosphere is beyond me; some say it was LSD, but you also have to appreciate their sheer talent and creativity. Stevie Winwood, Chris Wood, Jim Capaldi--unbelievable. The album this song is on, Low Spark of High Heeled Boys, is one of those underappreciated classic rock albums.
