Country Joe : I-feel-like-I’m-Fixin’-To-Die-Rag

Although this probably ruins my credibility with some of you people reading this, I have to admit that I watched Woodstock (the film) for the first time deliberately last night. I had seen it before in pieces of course, but hadn’t really payed that much of notice as that whole scene and time period wasn’t really my cup of tea (or so I thought in the past).

Having watched it now I have to say that in my opinion, Country Joe’s performance must have been one of the most memorable and best moments of the festival, but there are probably many people who would disagree with that statement. What is yours? Crosby, Still & Nash’s performance was pretty amazing as well.

Incidentally I believe that this song might have had a big influence on Todd Snider – had to think about a lot of Snider’s songs and overall attitude and style seeing this.

Anyway, here it is, enjoy. A worthy addition to my blog.

Eric Andersen : Thirsty Boots

I swear, I really should be calling myself Johnny Come Lately from now on. Can you believe I never heard that excellent song – a Folk classic, covered by the likes of Dylan and Judy Collins, never before until yesterday? I can’t, and I’m ashamed.
