attica blues make me think about the cover by galliano in the 90's on talking loud records...but archie is better!

Is Quiet Dawn available as an instrumental version? I hear a great track underneath a terrible vocal.
Attica Blues is great. It´s easy to imagine a 90´s cover.

The vocal is the best thing about it, Leo! Oh well, vive la difference...

Thanks for the tip on the '90s cover, Teddy. I need to hear that. '90s nostalgic revivalism is huge right now.
