Image of Canned Heat


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

Digitally remastered edition of their third album that includes a 19 minute tour de force, "Parthenogenesis", which displays the quintet at their most experimental. Also featured is their incarnation of Henry Thomas "Bulldozer Blues" where singer Wilson retained the tune of the original song, rewrote the lyric and came up with "Goin' Up The Country", whose simple message caught the back to nature attitude of the late 60's and went to number one in 25 countries around the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars The one to get September 20, 2004
By Franz
Format:Audio CD
Finally a complete and well remastered reissue of this great Canned Heat album. Several companies have put this on the market over the past 10+ years, one as a single CD (good sound, but leaving out Part 2 of Refried Boogie) and another (French) as a proper 2 CD set, beautiful packaging and all - but with flawed sound. BGO got it right with this release: all the tracks, great sound and all the artwork. Apart from this, it's also a fantastic album highlighting top notch Canned Heat in both studio and live settings.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Truly GREAT Blues CD July 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is Canned Heat's best CD by a long shot. It's like nothing else done by them or by anyone else. If you are turned off by their later weak efforts, you will be amazed at how good this CD is. It has a timeless appeal like Robert Johnson's records that sounds good across the decades of time since it was recorded. There is some really hot guitar work along with some nice harmonica "duets" and lush, full, soulful horns. I bought the record in 1968 and played it until it wore out. It was out of print for years. This CD is the real deal. If you like blues music, you will like this CD.

YES IT IS TRUE AFTER 31 YEARS WE HAVE AN EXCELLANT RE-MASTERED VERSION OF THIS TOTALLY CLASSIC BLUES ALBUM! This album was Canned Heat's "Sargent Pepper"Album a rather stunning array of different styles of music COMBINED TOGETHER SUCH AS EASTERN SITARS STYLE to Big Band arrangements using only Multi-Tracked Harmonicas, played by Alan Wilson who also sang the Major selling hits by Canned Heat.THE album has fantastic blues songs mixed with jazz horns section ,DR.John on Piano,John Mayell on Piano also,EQUISITE MULTI- TRACKED DRUM SOLO'S BY THEIR INCREDIBLE DRUMMER= Fito de La Para,Multitracked lead guitar solo's by the Late HENRY VESTINE(really genuis work here by him . Even one Concert version of Boogie is also on this CD.Safe to say that there will never be a Group Quite like CANNED HEAT .They were a great Blues Band but truely they played many styles of music and combined those styles of music in ways that no Band has ever even immitated Since their Departure. This was a two album set of records that always got scratched or damAged somehow. it is so nice to hear it hear QUIETLY with no pops or clicks etc.and REMASTERED TO utterPERFECTION!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Canned Heat's Best! November 17, 2001
This is a great CD! Although not easy to get. I waited six weeks for it to ship, but it was well worth it. I was a bit skeptical about the quality of the re-master because of one of the reviews I had read here, but the quality is excellent. It does not come in a jewel case, but in a nice replica of the original album cover that folds out. The one flaw was that CD 1 & 2 were misnumbered, but that didn't really affect anything.
Now as far as what is on the album. I had the original album back in 1968, and it was the first blues album that I ever had so I'm somewhat partial. I do have several Canned Heat albums though, and this is my favorite. If you're not familiar with it you are missing something. I like this version of the boogie because some of the lyrics seem to reflect the Bear's thoughts about the infamous bogus Denver drug bust that made news at the time. Henry Vestine's guitar licks are reminiscent of John Lee Hooker, but the vocal is more true to "Feelin' Good" by Little Junior's Blue Flames from the Sun label back in the 50's. The forty-one minutes does tend to get a little long but again for that time, this was a landmark presentation.
The second CD opens with two wonderful studio recordings. The first, "Pony Blues" almost seems like it could have been an Alan Wilson tune based upon the arrangement, but the Bear handles the vocal and it is one of his best. The second tune is a great Alan Wilson number in the mold of "Goin' Up The Country" and is one of my favorites by him. The rest of the disc is just as strong. Of particular note is the track "Parthenogenesis" which is a compilation of nine tunes. Including "Bear Wires" a great Bob Hite blues song featuring fantastic Albert Ammons-style piano played by John Mayall. Get it while you can, Don't Wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars Where's the DVD? February 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Like everyone else writing reviews about this music, hearing it was (and is) a pivotal event. It was right up there with Cream, Softs, and Ornette. I know every note of Henry's solo. My mother hated it then and my wife hates it now. Life's great, isn't it? No, really! But where's the DVD. Can you imagine seeing it too?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album of a great band December 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album reminds me on my youth, it was in the late sixties. I've got this album from a friend but the second part was missing.Fortunately I've got the complete album on cd now. Old times are living again. Canned Heat one of the greatest bluesbands ever on this planet. This is a must have album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boogie Forever January 3, 2002
By Eric
I had almost forgotten all about this wonderful record (to me it's still a record) that I had heard so much as a teenager, when I suddenly heard a few bars from "Refried Boogie" in the radio.
I got hold of it and behold!! After 30 years I can still remember every note in the solos. It may be that Canned Heat doesn't consist of the worlds most accomplished musicians but they sure as h... know how to play the blues.
