I first heard the song "Collage" in the late Nineties. The Breeders covered it for the lamentable movie version of the Mod Squad. Later, the blog Soul Sides hipped me to a beautiful take on the song by the Three Degrees from 1970. However, it wasn't until last year that I finally heard the original, written by Joe Walsh from the 1969 James Gang release 'Yer Album'. Now it's a real tossup over which reigns supreme as my favorite. Listen to both versions here:

The Three Degrees

I took this picture in an old Victorian in San Francisco, late Nineties.
