Video Gold:-->Edgar Winter Group



"So I've come here
to give you a hand.
And lead you into
the promised land."

-Edgar Winter Group-


Edgar Winter achieved his biggest success in 1972 with his then band mates...Dan Hartman...Ronnie Montrose (left soon after to form his own band)...Rick Derringer and Johnny Badanjek.

Their album..."They Only Come Out At Night" (1972)...quickly flew up the charts...thanks to the amazing instrumental..."Frankenstein" and the amazing sounds from Edgar Winter's guitar strap keyboard and monster synthesizer.

The follow-up track pulled from this classic album was the good time summer jam..."Free Ride"...written by Hartman.

Edgar Winter Group and "Free Ride" on D.K's. Rock Concert.

The mountain is high.
The valley is low.
And you're confused on which way to go.
So I've come here to give you a hand.
And lead you into the promised land.
So...
Come on and take a free ride. (free ride!)
Come on and sit here by my side.
Come on and take a free ride.
All over the country I've seen it the same.
Nobody's winning at this kind of game.
We've got to do better it's time to begin.
You know all the answers must come from within.
So...
Come on and take a free ride. (free ride!)
Come on and sit here by my side.
Come on and take a free ride.

Pick up some Edgar Winter.
Good stuff.

Casey
