The Band – Up On Cripple Creek

The Band is most well known for “The Weight,” but this is my favorite of theirs. It reminds me of my dad, I can remember him singing to The Band years back. It also reminds me of my hometown in Marlboro, OH.. I love this classic country rock vibe.

Gang Starr later sampled the bass riff from the beginning, check it out here.
