Dan Seals, R.I.P.

After the jump, the song for which the late, great W.W. Samuell High School graduate Dan Seals was best known: "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight," performed, of course, with classmate John Ford Coley shortly before they moved back to Dowdy Ferry Road. But here's the truly classic title cut from 1968's smash kinda-hit record Smell of Incense, featuring England Dan and John Ford Coley when they were but wee Grove Rats diggin' on the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band's setlist, playing Louann's on Greenville Ave. and opening for Led Zeppelin.

Locals who grew up with Dan Seals -- or, ya know, just fans -- can forward their farewells here.
