Living the Blues is the third album by Canned Heat, a double album released in late 1968. It was one of the first double albums to place well on album charts.

Dr. John appears on "Boogie Music". The 20-minute trippy suite "Parthenogenesis" is dwarfed by the album-length "Refried Boogie", recorded live.
