Going Up the Country – Canned Heat – I don’t like blues boogie but I liked this on the original Woodstock album and I like it here because Alan Wilson sons of bitches of songs and Bon Hite was a truly original vocalist. Score: 8/10

Woodstock Boogie – Canned Heat – I sware if this was, say ten minutes instead of half an hour in length I’d love it to to death but for fucks sake, how self-indulgent can you get. Nothing here deserves spending this much time on and I certainly won’t EXCEPT in the ongoing fore/background debate it works fine in the back and fine for the last two minutes in the front but the drum solo is fine for absolutely nobody. Score: 7/10.

Blood Of the Sun – Mountain – The difference between Canned Heat and Mountain is the difference between boogie and metal and Mountain’s keybs don’t help at all. Score: 4/10

Theme For An Imaginary Western – Mountain – Third time round I noticed Leslie West shout out Jack Bruce as the song writer -hence the long, long, long vocal lines. Score: 6/10

For Yasgur’s Farm – Mountain – You know what? I can’t take this guys voice, not a TERRIBLE song but I wanna smack West. Score: 6/10.

Dark Star – Grateful Dead – There are two Deads, one a blues boogie band and not a band one, the other a country-folk rock band and a great one. Here they are the former, a twiddly, tumbley broohahahahaha Score: 6/10

Green River – Creedence Clearwater Revival – You remember this delta blues shit, right? Score: 8/10

Bad Moon Rising – Creedence Clearwater Revival – Why couldn’t they place this for half an hour? Score: 9/10

I Put A Spell On You – Creedence Clearwater Revival – I’d say CCR were having a good night but CCR were ALWAYS having a good night. Score: 8/10

So Woodstock nation completed the move from folk to rock but the real shit is about to hit on CD 4!
