Charles Lloyd on YouTube

One of my favorite Charles Lloyd songs is only available on YouTube. While there are older versions of "Sombrero Sam" available on record from when Charles Lloyd was flourishing in the late 1960's, one has to turn to YouTube for an extended and more contemporary version of the song. I am waiting for the day when Charles Lloyd releases on CD one of his concerts featuring this song; until that time I have to find comfort in the video appearing below. There is a fourteen second glitch at the beginning, by the way, between 13 and 27 seconds into the video.
