Just wanted to add a comment to my favorite "Key to the Highway" it's also the Junior Wells version but especially because it has such beautiful guitar solos by Sammy Lawhorn.  To me it was Sammy that made that version so wonderful.

Congrats, I understand completely.

On May 11th 1990 at 6:35 AM I smoked my last cigarette.  The day before I
had smoked 4 packs.
Of course I weighed ONE hundred and sixty pounds then.  Now my weight still
ENDS in the words "hundred and sixty."  It just starts different.

But I DID kick the shit out of nicotine (and I started performing again for
the first time since 1978).  Everything has it's cost.
