    Canned Heat - Poor Moon and So Sad (The World's in a Tangle). Main songwriter Alan Wilson was an avid environmentalist.
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).
