Song of the Day: The Band - King Harvest (Has Surely Come)

I came upon The Band once I really started getting into Bob Dylan in college. I liked The Basement Tapes, but it was Dylan's Royal Albert Hall concert from the Bootleg Series that really made me want to check out The Band. The first two albums are classics, but I much prefer the eponymous album. Even though I had heard some of the songs before, I was surprised at how funky these guys were. "Up on Cripple Creek" is of course a great example of this, but "King Harvest" is a lesser known, excellent song.
