Note: A song destined to be special to all people of New Jersey, especially those who remember the summers of the mid-70s at the Jersey shore. Written in mid-1973, and recorded late in the WEISS sessions, August 9, 1973. V1 is the instrumental backing track. V2 is the original take, recorded later on August 9th with “bandits in the sky, and "Now, Sandy, them northern angels lost their desire for us, I spoke with them last night, they won't set themselves on fire for us anymore, still, when the weather gets hot, they ride that crazy road down from heaven on their Harleys every season they come and they go, dressed like stars in all them cheap little seaside bars, they're parked with their babies out on the Kokomo, love me tonight and I promise I'll love you forever….”. V3 is the album version, when vocal overdubs on September 23, 1973 replaced the magical lyrics with other "nice" lyrics. Thanks to Danny for playing accordian, recorder, glock and whatever else he does.
