The rhytm of this song makes it last through time. Yes, the lyrics are kind of poor, but it reflects propperly the beggining of the band.
I still enjoy it.

I was rewatching Rock in Rio for the millionth time and I had forgotten how great the version of Sanctuary is on this release. I love the instrumental. Two great solos, 3 Amigos doing ‘backing vocals’, the wah-wah, Bruce running around the Steve and Nicko locked in.
