Emerging in 1966, Canned Heat was founded by blues historians and record collectors Alan "Blind Owl" Wilson and Bob "The Bear" Hite. They gained international attention and secured their niche in the pages of rock 'n roll history with their performances at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival (along with Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and The Who) and the headlining slot at the ...

Editorial Reviews

Lifelong Canned Heat fans first got hooked when the band's eponymous debut LP came out in '67. All their years of wood-shedding paid off as they put their own electrifying spins on Dust My Broom; Evil; Help Me; Catfish Blues; Rollin' and Tumblin'; Goin' Down Slow , and more blues classics. Mastered from the original mono tapes and newly pressed onto 180-gram vinyl!

5.0 out of 5 stars A debut album for the ages April 10, 2012
Format:Vinyl
Canned Heat launched with this album in 1966. I bought it on the basis of the album cover and liner notes, which would be included in my 5 best liner notes of all time. The music lived up to all the expectations brought on by the packaging. Though the album cover is psychedelic in appearance, the music inside is strictly electric blues, updated, yet holding as close to the masters as possible. These are all covers, but what covers! All of these songs (with the possible exceptions of "Dust My Broom" and "Goin' Down Slow") had been mostly forgotten by the time record collectors Bob Hite (vocals and harmonica) and Alan Wilson (rhythm and slide guitar, harmonica, and vocals) brought them back to life in this album, but the liner notes explain all. Wilson was a master blues player--John Lee Hooker thought him the best harmonica player Hooker had ever heard, and that says a lot! Hite's vocal growling is reminiscent of Howlin' Wolf, perhaps TOO black sounding, perhaps not. Wilson's falsettos oddly enough were featured on the later, self-composed hits the group had. Henry Vestine, the lead guitarist, also was well-versed in the blues, had played with Frank Zappa, and the his mastery of the intense guitar solo clearly shows. Larry Taylor was a session bassist in L.A. and was featured on lots of pop hits and always displays excellent technique and faithfulness to the blues. Frank Cook, the drummer, only lasted this one album, leaving to go to Pacific Gas & Electric; on this album he proves to be a sound player.
To my mind, this is one of the most consistent and overall best blues albums by anybody, of whatever race. It spawned the next blues revival, and the band continues to gig to this day, the genesis of many great blues and boogie albums. I bought this again after the first copy wore out after 30 years of playing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Boogie and Blues @ it's best October 31, 2012
Format:Vinyl
The Canned Heat came onto the scene when the Blues genre was strickly a voice of the black community and due to crossover hits like On the Road Again and Going up Country resurrected the blues for all of the World. This album is strickly blues and damn fine blues it is,a lost classic. The musicians were all profient on there instruments,they gigged everywhere mostly for free because they loved to play the blues and they were of the school that the boogie can only make you tighter and better,this just wasn't a bunch of white kids trying to make a buck they were on a mission. Even before they recorded this they were revered in the blues community,Bob Hite had one of the biggest blues record collections and would sit with John Mayall in his home in Laurel Canyon listening all day.Sometimes the members of Canned Heat would join them,it's a shame that Mayall and the Canned Heat didn't record anything together.The song The Bear off of Mayall's Blues from Laurel Canyon is about Bob.Al Wilson is one fine harmonica player and guitarist as well as Henry Vestine is a great lead guitarist with a unique sound and fretwork technique. They hung out with the masters of the Blues,the likes of John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters and others and honed their chops,lapping up the knowledge and whiskey that was offered from them and many others.
When it came time to put it to Vinyl they created a masterpiece a lost nugget among Blues recordings of the 60's. Just put on any song on this recording and it delivers in spades.This is strickly the blues,no crossover songs just an homage to the blues musicians whom they worshipped. One Note, this is available in Mono,and it was recorded in Mono so if you wanna hear thumping bass,fiesty blues look for it in the Mono format,Sundazed Records has em on Vinyl.
