I was wondering if someone could tell me who sang lead on San Berd'no from the One Size Fits All album (that bit at the end..."come on with me...come on with me...down to san berdino" )...it had a very Lowell Georgish quality to it...I thought that's who it was but I know it's not.<br><br>thanks in advance those those who answer.

Good question...And while you are at it, Does beefheart start out Advance Romance. I can't tell if its him or not. At the very  beginning it doesn't sound like him, but ten seconds later it does. Who sings the first few lines?

Also, I loved Lowell George. Saw Little Feat three times in two days, all in the first six rows!

I think the Captain's playing harp.
