Herbie Mann - Sports Cars

Not actually one of Dad's 45s, but one that made an impression on me nonetheless. The year was 1970 or 71 and I was across the street at my friend Tim Brown's house, listening to 45s in his room with he and his brother Mike. Tim put this one on and I immediately dug it. Years later, I searched the song out and found this promo 45 from 1968.
Herbie Mann was one of the greatest jazz flautists the world has ever known. His "Memphis Underground", "Push Push" and of course, "Hijack", which was a Billboard Number-one dance hit of 1975 are timeless groove records. This one is for you Tim!
