Hey UG,

I'm sad to inform you all that there is no Country Joe & the Fish thread!! Well, now there is.. and I'd like to add that they are/were a fantastic band and helped contribute to classic rock in that classic way. For anyone who doesn't know who they are, I have put forth a link to one of their classic shows in 1969.. at Woodstock. This show is creepin' up on almost 40 years ago guys. Take it all in.

I've basically only heard their stuff from Woodstock, but I'll admit it's pretty groovy.

I haven't ever seen any of their albums before, which is probably why I haven't picked up any of their material.

For a while I was interested in finding some of their music, but was unable to.

Any recommendations, and any idea as to where to possibly get some of their albums?

the music sucks. They were culturally significant and important because of the war and Woodstock, but I hate the music.

Omg, I totally forgot to post this video up as well.. This is I Feel Like I'm Fixin' to die again, at Woodstock. This is an epic performance; pay attention to the lyrics.

I don't think it's really that bad.

I'll admit that the keyboards are really annoying, but overall they don't sound to bad.

I agree with the rest of your comment, though. :cheers:

yeah, the keyboards completely kill it for me. Their music alone wouldn't have gotten them anywhere.

Probably not, but I'm sure that some people enjoyed their music.
