This is gorgeous! Thanks for posting. A Few Thoughts on Dennis - Page 3 Smile

I seem to recall posting this at our old Bored. It came to light again while I was looking through old Smiley posts. As the uploader describes it: "Truck Drivin' Man", from "Cabinessence" chorus, revealed!

This song was the subject of voting at Hoffman yesterday. I gave it 5/5 and added:

"End Of The Show" features one of the most heart-rending moments in pop, that high instrumental sixth at 1:09 in the linked version. In terms of sheer mournfulness this ranks in my book with Richard and Levon's call and response in The Band's "Whispering Pines" and Gilmour's four-note chiming motif in "Shine On You Crazy Diamond". 

The perfect closer for POB--in my book.

Cool! I find Hoffman combines well with the Bored--one small and intimate, the other vast, comprehensive and anonymous. And thanks for the compliment!

Right now they're voting on a Dennis song called "Cocktails". There's a curious sound heard clearly at 0:40 that I can't place. Is it a synth? Or maybe some item of percussion? What do you think, folks?
