I first heard this at a friends house in 1967 during a poker game and liked it so much I bought the record and still have it. This was back in the time when with my GF you put a towel at the bottom of the bedroom door to keep the Lady Jane smoke from getting out. Still have that GF and still listening to it via MP3 on my iPhone & Home Stereo.
Note: at least on the MP3 album here on Amazon, Lady Jane song is mistitled as Lady Lane!
Back in the day I could never find Rotary Connection records in my towns record store. I heard Ruby Tuesday and Soul Man from this album on the radio maybe once or twice. They left an impression on my mind for the next 38 years until I found RC on CD here at Amazon. To my terrific surprise the best song for me on the album was one I never heard back in the day. The RC cover of the Stones Lady Jane is just magically over the top. It literally blows my mind. I've never heard anything else like it.

One of my favorite albums of the early 70's, I've been looking for several years hoping to see it out in CD or digital format. Needless to say I was thrilled when I came across it the other day.

You will find yourself enjoying some of the tracks more than their originals.
