Freebasing Steve White

Just seen the latest Clint Eastwood movie and More Today Than Yesterday is heavily featured....poignant to me as I got into this scene when catchy pop records were rife, late 70’s ....but still, what an uplifting dancer of a tune, and a lot of their other stuff Is equally pleasing to the ear and feet! Was it a hit back then, if not where did Clint get into it? Never saw him at Yate, but it would have “made my day”!

The soundtrack has both the Spiral Staircase and Charles Earland versions, the latter, being a jazz instrumental is probably more up Clint's street.  He's also a dab hand at the piano blues.

Thanks for that, I thought I heard a third version in there, may have been the Charles Earland one too....I’ll investigate!
