Dyke and The Blazers - Runaway People

I got a root canal the other day and was listening to this on my headphones in a vicodin-induced state and realized how brilliant of a song, arrangement and performance this is.

And I say performance because realize the way they recorded records was live, or at least in a series; rhythm and horns with strings, then vocals, then maybe lead. Most modern albums rely heavily on technology to order and dictate the performances, the sound quality. This is a room full of people playing music (noting, possibly that they may be in relative isolation booths). It’s a sign of the times nowadays when they try to emulate how they used to make records, when all they’re really doing is trying to capture how people actually perform music.
