Now That's A Pretty Song

How Can I? from the 1977 Steve Hackett album Please Don't Touch. Found on a pre-recorded cassette tape I got in a remainder bin in Woolworth's in The Precinct, Coventry sometime around 1980 and probably never listened to in all honesty, and had sat in my basement through I don't know how many floods.

It took me a very long time to figure out that one phrase had been "borrowed" from Across the Universe, and that Richie Havens was doing the vocals.
