Black Peter

Another great Black Peter- its one of those songs i never tire of hearing- ive never heard a bad one yet...Garcias really soulful with his delivery,excellent vocals- when Jerry had a youthful soft voice.

This is a nice one...Its got an African flavour to it that i like a lot..Billy and Mickey really run with this one..Reminds me of the Serengeti..Also,the Playin reprise is coloured by this jam at the start.
