With only a few weeks to go until "This Is My Jam" is shuttered forever, this might be the last song I play on this service. If so, it's the best rock song of the 1970's. Bar none.

Whoever edited this video is a bit behind the times, not knowing that "Julia" was a reference to Diahann Carroll's sitcom; or that it was "Willie Mae" pushing a shopping cart, not Willie Mays. Probably best to enjoy the song without the video...
