Super Long Pop Songs:

"Refried Boogie (Parts 1&2)" Length: 41:00
This version of Canned Heat's boogie was recorded live at The Kaliedoscope in Los Angeles. It filled two sides of the double album "Living the Blues". On the CD it is listed as tracks 3 and 4, but on the vinyl LP it was printed as tracks 2 and 4 so it could be listened to without the need of turning over the record.
