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 ...

Another excellent offering from the Canned Heat boys, a nice raw hard sound, with 5 leads vocal from Kite & 4 from Wilson (they never seemed to have share vocals, perhaps their voices didn’t fit together).
Although heavily influenced by blues & R&B, the band gives their own unique & contemporary interpretation of the genre.
Highlights for me is the 7 minute blue rundown “London Blues” & “So Sad..”, in which AL Wilson sings about a failed first date (it’s thought by people close to Wilson that one of the reasons that contributed to him committed suicide (apart from his environmental concerns) was his failure to have long term relationships with women).
Best of the extra tracks is “Xmas Blues”, it’s quite nice to here a Christmas song not sung by Slade & Wizzard. Although there are bits of the chipmunk’s song that are played at a fast & furious pace that sound quite good!
Great sound quality & excellent liner notes, & to be honest I wasn’t expecting that much from this album (I thought the band's star was on the wane by the time this record was released), but this is a completely compelling CD from start to finish.

A welcome reissue of the Heat’s 1970 album, with five bonus tracks, this should appeal to listeners who need to replace their cherished vinyl. Apart from guitarist Harvey Mandel who stood in for Henry Vestine, this was the last album to feature the classic line up of Bob Hite, Al Wilson, Larry Taylor and drummer Adolfo “Fito” De La Parra. Shortly after this album was made Al ’Blind Owl’ Wilson tragically died of a drugs overdose at 27 years old.
While this may not be the best album that they ever recorded, there are still some good cuts including their classic version of ‘Let’s Work Together’, that is included as a mono version within the bonus tracks, ‘So Sad (the World’s In A Tangle), and the title track. Dr John plays piano on Al Wilson’s tale of lost love in ‘London Blues’, and again on the cheerful ’Skat’.
Long-time fans of the band will of course, have this CD in their collection, but for any listener who is discovering Canned Heat’s music for the first time it is worth a listen.

I purchased this album on vinyl when it was first released back in the seventies, the very early seventies and for many years it was my favourite album. After two listen throughs, it is again, the Heat were a great band!

Good album but mastering quality not that good on a couple of tracks, also would benefit from better packaging ie digipak and better album info, still a good album.

This is all very nice but it's not Canned Heat because Henry Vestine isn't on it.
Harvey Mandel is a much more capable guitarist and you might think that losing Vestine, with his limited soloing repertoire
of the same 8 notes, as Alan Wilson put it would improve the band.
As it turns out, for me anyway they become less of a team and more of an appendage.
So sometimes more is less.

I recently bought this album, it's the first time I've heard it since it came out in 1970, 41 years ago! None of the tracks disappoint, and World's In A Tangle (the last track) is brilliant. Instead of killing himself, Alan Wilson should have used his money from Canned Heat to set up a nature reserve or animal sanctuary; but I'm using the hindsight of history to say this so what do I know?
