"Tired Of Waiting." Written by Ray Davies for The Kinks originally, but credited here simply to The Flock. Maybe their thoughts were aligned with Jimmy Page, who credited himself for songs on Led Zeppelin's first album. Page felt that he changed and added.to the songs in a substantial way, so he credited them to himself. Perhaps The Flock felt this way for Tired Of Waiting. They rethought it and changed it - just enough? - for their jazz/rock sensibilities. This is like jazz/prog rock, I think. It's pretty heavy. Harder than the new jazz-rock outfits around at the time, at least the more well-known ones. One of The Flock's original members was violinist Jerry Goodman, who joined John McLaughlin's Mahavishnu Orchestra, a pretty heavy jazz fusion aggregation itself.
And here it is! Just got my copy of the latest from Colorado's finest, and I am soooo ready to give it a spin soon! Also, a little early birthday gift from my dad! The old man knows me well. Happy Friday!
