Song credit on the label lists Auger and two others. Could the Oblivion Express version be the original?!?

CRAP! More happy homework... According to THE INTERNET... ;^? Looks like originally from Eddie Harris, 'The In Sound' (1965). MUSIC NERDS UNITE! Does anyone have a for-sure answer?! Anyhow, COOL TRACK.

Musical Mystery. Took another at the record. Also lists a Harris which I guess would be Eddie. Perhaps Brian added his own name since it's not a straight cover? Does the original have vocals? Ligertwood also listed as a writer...

Seems right. But yeah. Happy homework... Unless some mega-nerd chimes in and can inform us. (Professor Mike, are you out there?? ;^)
