Editorial Reviews

As one of the most respected blues rock groups ever since their formation back in the mid-Sixties, Canned Heat have successfully carried the boogie-blues flame they made famous into the 21st Century and continue to play to packed houses around the World. In both of the two recent European concerts featured in this double DVD set the band boogie from start to finish, playing highlights from their long and distinguished career, including their big hits, 'On The Road Again', 'Going Up The Country' and 'Let's Work Together'. The bonus documentary, 'The Story Of Canned Heat', runs for nearly three and a half hours and chronicles the band's fascinating history. It includes a host of original promo clips and concert footage of the band, featuring its various line-ups from the 1960s through to the 1990s. For a one-stop visual dose of Canned Heat 'Then' and 'Now' this is the ultimate purchase.

Format: DVD
The first DVD tells the story of Canned Heat through 52 pieces of footage from their concerts and promo clips running nearly 3 1/2 hours.
It starts with showing the Heat playing at Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, and ends with them playing at Rockpalast in 1998.
There's no narrator, only Canned Heat doing their thing.

Here's some of the content:

All the Playboy Sessions from 1969 (3 songs and a short interview with Bob Hite).
Montreaux, 1973 - 2 songs, "Rock And Roll Music", and, "Refried Boogie" (14 min.!). This is from the same concert as the DVD called
"Canned Heat - Live From Montreaux". Too bad they did'nt include these 2 songs on the DVD but here they are!
Kralingen, Holland, 1970 - 2 songs, "So Sad", and, "Human Condition". I've seen them on Youtube but here they're in colour!
"Leaving This Town", from Woodstock. (I wish they had chosen "I'm Her Man, or, "On The Road Again" instead)
"Future Blues", from Montreaux, 1970. (I wish they had chosen one of the other songs from the concert, especially their extended version
of "On The Road Again", in which Alan Wilson plays his harmonica for quite a long time)
There's concert footage from countries such as Sweden, France, Italy, Germany and Belgium, I have'nt seen before. Songs that are not on their albums! How cool is that?
There's 3 songs where Becky Barksdale is part of the line-up, 1 song with Ronnie Barron in the Line-up, and 1 song with
Larry Taylor on upright bass.
There's 4 songs from the Woodstock Reunion in 1989, and 2 songs from Christmas Eve, 1980, four months before Bob Hite's death
on April 4th, 1981. John Lee Hooker sings and plays guitar on one of the songs (the camera focus' on Hooker all the time, unfortunately).

Without a doubt, the most complete and best video record of the life and times of Canned Heat. Many of the same songs, but filmed in many different places of the world with their many varied lineups. Tremendous graphics and information to follow with band members and lineup changes and some great personal interviews. Sound and picture are excellent. If you love Canned Heat and just want to really know about them... even if you don't... a great piece of history and very well done... a lot of music for your money. Skip Taylor, manager, producer and friend of Canned Heat for 45 years.

This is a Double DVD Set:

DVD #01 - "Most Excellent"! I was 20 years old in 1967. This DVD has the 'Original Members' Canned Heat Music along with a Storyteller History of the band from 1967 thru 1998 beginning at the Monterey Pop Festival to Woodstock including Overseas Tours up until 1998.

It also includes some History of the 'Original' Band Members, their Lives, their Hopes, their Dreams, their visions, their deaths and their last concerts. It filled in a lot of gaps of Canned Heats History and answered a lot of questions that I had wondered about personally over the years . . . since I was part of the 60's Generation. I Rate this Item a "4 Star" based upon DVD #01 . . . Not DVD #02.

DVD #02 - I Rate DVD #02 a Possible/Maybe "0 to 1 Star". I was Not Impressed. I didn't recognize any of the band members. All New Faces. They tried their best but I wasn't impressed.

Concert @01 consists of music "Piazza Blues" recorded at the "Piazza Governo" in Bellinzona, Switzerland by a "Foreign" Canned Heat Group singing the Original Canned Heat songs on June 30, 2000...(Not The Same)!

Concert #02 was recorded Live at The Subway Club, Cologne, Germany on March 24, 2000.

Conclusion: Despite DVD #02...Personally, I would "BUY" this set based upon the Storyteller Account and Music of DVD #01 of the "Original Canned Heat Members". This DVD Set also includes Live Interviews with Bob Hite (1973), Henry Vestine (1996) and Fito De La Parra (1991) who were part of the Original Canned Heat Band Members!
