Yes! That's what it is! Thanks, Ziggytrix! (This only works on the "classic" version of the site).
I wouldn't have known what you were talking about, but have taken to have two tabs open for RP: one tab classic, mostly for the playlist and one tab with the beta for its great features. 
I understand the beta player is something of an orphan currently, awaiting the unveiling of a much anticipated and newly redesigned version.
Whenever Bill begins his bit about lossless my ears perk up, hoping that it is finally available on the web player.

I'm proud of Canada for having the courage to look at itself. Humility and atonement is good for strength.  In regard to any matters like Truth and Reconciliation, the U.S. is too busy wearing its ass for a hat. The powers that be can't even seem to stop spraying our food with chemicals that are proven poison, and complain bitterly that athletes are kneeling to protest a small core of violent law enforcers. Native Americans? Slavery?  The Civil War?  Good luck with wtf'ing Truth. 

As for The Kinks, from raw and raucous You Really Got Me to the fun but thoughtful social critique of Victoria. That's its own truth.

This song is from 1969. It sounds a lot like Canned Heat's Going up the Country which is from 1968.

Perhaps the Church should shoulder some of the burden/blame.

This whole album is brilliant start to finish - written for a left wing TV programme that never got made.

The Kinks doing their Canned Heat impression?

 
Canned Heat - the hippie, quasi-blues band? It sounds to me, like The Kinks, who were putting out records before Canned Heat existed.
