opps! Blue Sky isn't instumental, but it should be.
Yeah I love Blue Sky.
Speaking of Allman Bros., Jessica was always one of my favorites. Dickey has another great one, think it's on Win Lose or Draw, called High Falls (too lazy to get up and check but pretty sure that's it).
Besides Grand Junction, I also think highly of those other Poco ditties Fools Gold and High Sierra.
Like Blue Sky, some songs are really mostly instrumental. I love Speedway at Nazareth by Mark Knopfler; the last half of that song is just great. And then there's PPL's Same Old Country Song from their first album, ending with an extended instrumental. Then of course, I have to include Outlaws' Green Grass and High Tides. Not instrumentals, but...
How about the No Nukes version of Heart of the Night? I crank that jam at the end. They went for the same thing on the 2004 live one with Richie but I think it wasn't pulled off as well.
Back to straight instrumentals, Soldier's Joy from the first Circle project by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. I never zip past it on the iPod.
