Ok, be honest.... How many knew Steve Miller 'covered' this song?
Pena is credited on my record and CD, although I can't say that I had ever actually listened to the original. I say 'my record' even though I no longer have it, or any of them - recently sold the lot and my turntable as part of my downsizing. For the first time in 51 years, I don't have a record player, which feels a bit strange.
Speaking of covers, here's one of "Carry on Wayward Son" that hit YouTube well before sunrise in my part of the world.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r93xUWP_lPk
