Funnily enough I was thinking of putting on High Tides and Green Grass...
By the way, does anyone know why Little Red Rooster was on the original vinyl, but missing on the CD version?

He's long before your time Sid... but he was to my generation, everything that you love about music from your generation... raw, unrestrained, anti-establishment, uncompromising... for me, he's up there with the likes of Joni Mitchell as the greatest ever musical export of Canada...

Oh fuck yeah... but a lot of it is like I said, not really your generation... he had a go at Nixon, and Americas racist south... a lot of his greatest music dealt with the issues of the 60s/70... Nam, heroin addiction...

And it don't get any better than "Rockin the Free World"...
