|From: Living the Blues; Year: 1968; Genre: Blues Rock|
Anyway, this is without a doubt the second big hit from Canned Heat with only a few other songs of renown. It was actually based on Henry Thomas' Bull Doze Blues; borrowing the melody you hear on the flute amongst other aspects of the song. It has a bit of an aged sound, but the blues aspects make it much more timeless and unique.
