Saturday tunes: "She said there is no reason"

By that time Gary Brooker (piano and vocals) and Matthew Fisher (Hammond organ) were the last thread of continuity with the band that formed in 1967 (often said to have been named after a friend's Burmese cat).

Here's the full wind-it-out version of one of progressive rock's founding texts, featuring the two verses you know, plus the two you never hear.
