220px-Living_the_Blues_-_Canned_Heat#11– Canned Heat – “Going Up The Country” – (1968)

I’m really sucking it up. I promise at least five of the songs from “1969” will actually be from 1969. This delightful and airy tune is from blues rock band Canned Heat. A band that, for some reason, I always felt was like the grandfather of Blues Traveler. Maybe it’s because Bob Hite looks kind of like John Popper. Fun fact, this was kind of considered the “theme song” for Woodstock and was performed there. And you can’t beat that flute!
