 My brother came home with this album from some group called Canned Heat. I think it was in 69. We start playing it and out comes this. I must have heard it a thousand times since.

In October of 1968, Canned Heat released, Living the Blues, which included, "Going Up the Country". Alan Wilson's incarnation of Henry Thomas’ "Bull-doze Blues" was almost a note-for-note copy of the original, down to Thomas's instrumental break on the quills which Jim Horn duplicated on flute. Wilson rewrote the lyrics with a simple message that caught the “back-to-nature” attitude of the late ‘60s. The song went to #1 in 25 countries around the world (only reached #11 on the U.S national chart) and would go on to become the unofficial theme song of the Woodstock Festival as captured in Michael Wadleigh's 1970 documentary.

  Kiteking,
 Henry Thomas was pretty dang good. I've been trying to get a collection of his songs together.
 If anyone has any mp3s by him I would appreciate you sending them to me by email.
 Thanks

That list missed most of my generation, mid-vinyl. It's interesting that there's no Three Dog Night, Elvis, or Beatles music on the list. I don't have a cell phone or XM, so that probably explains a lot.

It's not that there are bad songs on the list, it's that it looks like corporate "Classic Rock Radio" made it.   Sad

Oh, wait!!!  They did!!  Smiley

My youngest brother once said,

"Most of us just keep listening to the music we had when we were 25 years old."

That list of 100 songs, sadly, is made up of songs I have heard way too many times. That doesn't make them bad, just played too often.  Sad

It was 1970 and I was living in Santa Barbara. We were at a party when I first heard it and made them play it over and over. Songs back then could become your mantra and this one's stuck in my heart all these years. I miss you Janis...

You are a quietly dark person Mr. B. How many times did you watch "Harold and Maude"? For me it was about a dozen over the decades.  Cool

hey, I love that film, along with the other Bud Cort film that came out right before, Brewster McCloud, both as quirky a film as you'd ever want. I always thought the Cat Stevens soundtrack to H&M was very fitting.
