Listen to “Handle With Care”; “End Of The Line”; “The Devil’s Been Busy”; “Tweeter And The Monkey Man”; “Heading For The Light”; “Mr Tambourine Man”; “If Not For You”; “Pretty Woman”; “Mr Blue Sky”; “Here Comes The Sun”; “I Won’t Back Down”; “Runaway”; “Running Down A Dream”; “Learning To Fly”; “Refugee” and many others.
