Oh my, this is beautiful and this song is just a perfect accompaniment. I've never seen Canned Heat before. That was great.

I always enjoy it when someone posts a video of a band I've never seen live like this. It's fun after all these years of hearing this song to finally see the faces of the band members; the singer especially. :)

Canned Heat, that's a clever link. It's not rush hour on the highway.
I own that lovely 60s song on 45 rpm.
HFF Roger.

I've read a while ago, the group's name refers to Cheap Liquor. Is this correct?
2 years ago.
Roger (Grisly) club has replied to Tacheles club
Thank you Norbert, not rush hour but still a summer Saturday, that's correct about the band name it's from a 1914 product named Sterno Canned Heat.

First time I could say the Motorway looks quiet attractive. I can see why you are so fond of the area Roger, what an added bonus to the shot with the railway making up the lower third section.
