I love this album so much. It was the first classic rock CD I ever listened to and still play it regularly.

Harmony and me...
We're pretty good company
Looking for an island
In our boat upon the sea...

Harmony, gee I really love you
And I want to love you forever
And dream of the never, never, never leaving harmony

Back to the howling old owl in the woods
Hunting the horny back toad....
Oh, I've finally decided my future lies-
Beyond the yellow brick rooaaaaaad!!!

This sounds like a great idea, now do one for Aretha, Etta, Stevie (Nicks and Wonder) and Johnny Cash etc.

There is absolutely no chance that I will listen to this tribute album.

But, I will talk about how amazing the original album is. I found it in a used vinyl bin for like, $5. Beyond worth it those five dollars.

that's one of my favorite songs to sing along to in the car

Isn't it great? They still playfully dig at each other it's hilarious . I wish they'd tour though. It would be great. I can't believe they've known each other for 50 years!
