Groovy free instrumental: "That's No Dream"

[Dreamy sky]I've posted another free instrumental song to my Penmachine Podcast. My original composition of "That's No Dream" was a sort of Tori Amos angst solo piano-stomp, with singing and everything, but after removing the words and adding groovy percussion, gritty Wurlitzer piano, funky Hammond organ, and changly Stratocaster guitar, it magically turned into a peppy little four-minute number.

Here's a direct link to the MP3 file (4.8 MB). If you're a Penmachine Podcast subscriber, you probably already have the tune on your computer, and maybe even in your iPod. If you're a podcaster, the song is entirely , so go ahead and use it in your show if you like. Anyone can also share, remix, sample, or rework it, as long as you give me credit and let others do the same.

Incidentally, my two favourite bits of this piece are the ten seconds of groove between the 2:24 and 2:33 marks, and the growly, sandpapery single-coil guitar tone I achieved in the lines between 3:00 and 3:30.
