That is one of my favourite songs. I guess it's the Kentucky Derby reference that gets you. Really good live version on "Ladies & Gentlemen - The Rolling Stones" from 1972. On youtube.:jam: :stones:

Yessirree dems some good high energy tunes.

Yes, when that movie came out in '74 we all (mom, boyfriend, girlfriend, neighbor, and boss) decided to hop in the gunmetal blue '66 S-type Jag and drive from Longboat Key over to the waterfront theater by the pier in Tampa to see and hear it in "quad", one of the first movies to use that effect which was all the rage then. I've still got the poster. The poor old car overheated as we were climbing the Sunshine Skyway and we had to stop at the very top to let it cool down, coast to the bottom of the bridge to the island and get some water from the public bathroom then continue our adventure.

It was rather like a concert event.

Here's a poster I bought at the theater that now hangs in my office. You can see all the thumbtack marks in the lower right-hand corner of the poster from the dozens of walls I hung it on as I moved around, all up and down Florida. Lotta good vibes happened in front of this poster.
