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 ...

5.0 out of 5 stars A time, a place, and a just a great band... August 14, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Canned Heat were emblematic of their era. Excessive, troubled, still learning their craft while selling millions of records, reckless with everything (including the recordings), and finally self tortured. What saved them was their enthusiasm, ability, and deep knowledge of the blues. Cogent choices of blues classics , and Al Wilson's regenerant fleshing of the Delta Sound created a unique and deeply satisfying beat: ie "boogie".
What was compelling about it all was the honesty and to some extent, courage they played and sang with. Wilson's LONDON BLUES and PULLING HAIR BLUES lurch and weave along, as we join a club's audience cringing to his psychic nightmare of sexual confession. Just when you want to run for cover, Bob Hite (alternate lead vocal ) mows down the house with burners like: THAT'S ALL RIGHT MAMA and whose stage patter was legendary. (Did you ever see the Jim Morrison impression?)
This recording is both a portrait of personal agony, and to the last a few moments of an original American bit of genius. Though a bit self indulgent, like its own era, it goes by much too fast. It is in my considered opinion much too short a sayonara to the Alan Wilson era.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is How It Really Was February 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Although the disc was recorded in Europe this is very similar to the concert I attended. Sadly, this would be one of Al Wilson's last recordings. After he took his own life the band was never the same. Most of the tracks are previously unreleased songs and the high point is the duet with Al on harp and Larry Taylor on bass ("Hair Pulling Blues"). This is so representative of what they were like--as much a party as it was a concert. Incidentally, Harvey Mandel had replaced Henry Vestine by the time of this recording. Carry on!!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Heat In Europe, 1970, From The Archives.. June 15, 2010
By R. Webb
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Canned Heat, "Recorded Live In Europe 1970", Alan Wilson will keep you hypnotized throughout this show with his phenomenal harp playing and eerie, haunting vocals. Bob Hite introduces the band, Alan Wilson, the man who does it all, a great respect coming from one band member to another. The set list starts with Arthur Crudup's "That's Alright Mama", with Bob Hite, "one of the most original covers" I've ever heard, the mike is then passed over to "blind owl", Wilson wails on harp & vocals, the unusual "Pulling Hair Blues", the definite highlight of this show with bass extraordinaire Larry Taylor. "Bring It On Home" and "London Blues" are also in the evening spotlight. One problem with this recording, there is some air time between songs, probably better this than being edited, and you wonder while listening to Bob Hite emcee the audience, what happened to "Goin' Up The Country", and what was Hite's Jim Morrison impression about. The show is short, technically only six songs, still without a doubt "thoroughly entertaining". The audio is adequate for a live recording running at forty six minutes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Canned Heat-last time with the Blind Owl January 26, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This live CD is a reissue of a concert I have had on LP for many years--the poster is kind of cool but it shows Henry Vestine on guitar who is not in the band at the time of this concert--Harvey Mandel was the guitar player--this was made right before Alan Wilson(Blind Owl)'s death. The sound is great only this concert is way too short--the medley is too short and the music drags on. The album notes are very few if any--no mention of the band players and no other information is provided--concert date, place recorded, or band members is shown---I say for collectors like me-stay away from this one-no information is provided. Get the two disc Playing the Blues CD instead.
