  1. You’re missing a couple:

    Iron Butterfly: Possession (ride in the break)

    Fleetwood Mac: Oh Well (I think, though mostly it’s a wood block, I think; might be a jar instead.)

    Glad you caught Mississippi Queen!

  2. I don’t know if it features prominently enough, but Otherside by Pendulum has got some cowbell going on. Either way it’s an awesome song….

  3. “Drive My Car” Beatles cover by the Donnas (This Bird Has Flown: A 40th Anniversary Tribute to the Beatles’ Rubber Soul)
