Biography

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 ...

Format: Audio CD
This compilation covers the period 1967 to 1972 and contains the best tracks from their most famous period. They have recorded some interesting music since then, most notably the album Boogie 2000, which I've already reviewed.

Here you can find all their big hits. On the road again, my favorite track, was a UK top ten hit and a USA top 20 hit in 1968. Going up the country became a top 20 hit on both sides of the Atlantic. Let's work together was Canned Heat's biggest UK hit, reaching the top three although it was only a top 30 hit in America. Bryan Ferry later covered it as Let's stick together and also had a huge British hit with it. Country singer Dwight Yoakam also recorded a great cover of the song, proving that a great song can be adapted to any style of music and still sound great.

If you remember and enjoy On the road again, Going up the country and Let's work together, then you will surely enjoy the rest of the music here, as those songs are typical of Canned Heat's style. Apart from a great cover of That's all right Mama (a song made famous by Elvis Presley), the other songs are somewhat obscure but great to listen to. Among them are a minor UK hit (Sugar bee), a minor USA hit (Time was) and an unlikely collaboration with the Chipmunks on the Chipmunk song.

There have been many compilations of Canned Heat's music down the years. This one was originally released in 1989, so it does not make use of the latest digital re-mastering technology but it's plenty good enough for me.

If you want to buy one of the "Best of Canned Heat" CD's on the market, this is the one you should buy! In my opinion, it's one of the best Canned Heat compilations out there, if not the best. It's only one CD, but there's lots of songs on it and it's about one hour long.
It contains all of their greatest hits and some of their best songs from the bands best period 1967 - 1970, when Canned Heat co-founder, Alan Wilson, was still alive.

(Canned Heat still performs and records 44 years after their start in 1965, although there's only one band member left from what is called "The Classical Lineup" (1968-1970), the drummer, Fito De La Parra. The music is still the same though, and if you're interested in Blues and Boogie music, some of those later albums are worth checking out.)

Like most classic bands Canned Heat has gone thru' many incarnations but most would agree 1966 to 1970 were the great years with Blind Owl and also Harvey "the Snake" Mandel (not to lessen Henry "the Sunflower" Vestine's input).It's hard to say anything new about this greatly under-rated band.They could create a real soulful blues atmosphere and also boogie with the best.My favorite band so I am biased and yet this album covers a lot of their best material.
