Tonight’s mystery artist has a hit song that morphed from an eagle escaping a reservation to a salute to War’s song ‘Slipping into Darkness’  Can you put that together and come up with anything??

Back it this songs first incarnation even the lyrics were different according to Wikipedia.  Starting with a song that sounded more bluesy and was about an eagle who longs to fly away from a Native American reservation. However the song that made it onto the Steve Miller album ‘Fly Like An Eagle’ wound up much funkier and is said to be more of an homage to 'Slippin’ Into Darkness' by the band War.

Here is Steve with a very psychedelic version tonight's featured song.

Listen to War and see if you can catch the similar feel.
