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!

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!

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.

D. Sparkman wrote a terrific review of this classic rock 'n' roll debut, so I will stick to this particular 2011 vinyl edition from Sundazed.
No doubt this is one more underrated bands from the 1960s, whose catalog has never been given the curatorial respect it deserves. Recorded in early 1967, "Canned Heat" precedes "Truth" or "Led Zeppelin" by one and two years respectively. It is hard, deep, and dirty. Fans of the debut "Steppenwolf" might want to check this out as well. Bob Irwin and his label, Sundazed, have mastered this edition from Liberty's mono analog master for maximum impact, and it is one powerful platter. "Boogie With", the second album, can best be heard on the recent Iconoclassic remaster (expanded). I'm still waiting for decent upgrades of "Living The Blues", "Hallelujeh", and "Future Blues". Lest we forget, Mobile Fidelity issued a spectacular gold CD of "Hooker 'n' Heat" a decade ago. But this is the place to start, in mono, on vinyl.

This album ranks up there with the Great albums of the sixties. These boys were the blues plain and simple. The album lets folks know that the blues were still alive and kicking. Great songs and great playing. Do your self a favor and add it to your collection. You'll smile believe me.
