Re: [Harp-L] Going Up The Country by Canned Heat

I would gladly give the credit for "Going up the country" flute for Al
Wilson, but I remembered
seeing either Jim Horn or Steve Douglas doing it once in David Letterman's
It was mentioned that he was the original flute player...I just couldn't
remember which one of Duane Eddy's sax players it was...
so I Googled it and the answer is: Jim Horn
It is wonderful to see that Alan Wilson is getting noticed again for the
wonderful pioneer work he was doing.
