It was a hit in the United Kingdom. It is famous for its time-typical sitar riff, played by Dave Mason, and its soulful vocals by composer Steve Winwood. The B-side, "Giving to You," was later released in a modified version (4:20) on their album Mr. Fantasy.

The album version omits the vocal section, and begins and ends with overdubbed spoken parts (probably by Chris Wood).
