Flamenco-based country blues? It's such a great tune that so many of us love, but it's such a weird song. Long lyrics, which basically is just a guy's impression/description of a little club/pub in London, with music that, to my mind, doesn't really fit the lyrics. A bit dramatic/flashy/lilting music v. the low-key, non-dramatic atmosphere in the lyrics. Yet, here it is 40+ years down the road, making people smile and wanting to pick up a guitar and make it cry and sing. What a tune.
