    ------ About the song Save It For A Rainy Day performed by Jayhawks

This song is so beautiful, man. Definitely 70s homage material...I still can't quite pinpoint the influence...kinda like their cover of "Bad Time" (Grand Funk)...with Crosby and Nash backups on the chorus...

But mostly solid Jayhawks with Gary Louris' wondrous voice and the walk-on solo in the break...

A++
