Song of the day: Canned Heat- On The Road Again

canned_heart_on_the_road_again

In 1967, Canned Heat recorded the song On The Road Again. It fitted in their style of blues rock, though they put in some psychedelic elements too. They borrowed some things from other blues songs, sung it in falsetto and made it one of their first hits. At first the song was over 7 minutes long, but they shortened it. The song made it to number 8 in the UK and number 16 in the US. Enjoy
