There's not enough brass in rock music anymore

Just something I've noticed, I love a good brass section in a song and it seems confined to classic rock songs.

One of my favourites:

What other classic rock tunes have awesome brass sections?

I cant think of a particular tune off the top of my head, but "Tower of Power" were before "Chicago" in having a brass section in a rock band.

Another great band with a (albiet "one man") brass section was "Blodwyn Pig".

Another is "Colosseum" :

Stands the test of time, epic brass. In fact it is ALL about the brass. And that relentless snare, and the brass. Don't forget the brass.
