Funky Ass Road Trip

it was just over 40 years ago when my buddies and i piled into a van to make our way around the great U.S. of A. we always checked out local bands along the way and ended up hearing some really great music. it was a crazy ride and these tunes are pretty much all i can remember from that funky ass road trip.
