5.0 out of 5 stars 21 tracks of blues/rock heaven!, 22 Mar 2009
This review is from: Canned Heat / Boogie With Canned Heat (Audio CD)
This superb disc contains two albums, Canned Heat and Boogie With Canned Heat. The first is good, but "Boogie" is a true classic that stands up very well to the test of time, great blues/rock from the late `60s. Every song is a jewel. Al Wilson, Bob "the bear" Hite, Henry Vestine, Fido and the Mole all perfectly compliment each other, and the excellent recording quality and production must also be mentioned. Guitarist Henry Vestine was one of the all-time best white blues guitar players - Hendrix used to go see him play, learning something from his style. I have been listening to this album for nearly 40 years and am still not tired of it. The follow up, Living The Blues, was a bit overblown, but this CD presents the band at their tight, succinct best.

No problem with this pairing but why on earth was fourth album 'Halelujah' twinned the compilation 'Cookbook'? With the plethora of compilations currently available with longer running times surely the original 'Cookbook' best-of has been rendered obsolete? Unless there are publishing issues that prevents it logic dictates that 'Halelujah' should be joined with the following studio set, 'Future Blues', or the live '70 Concert'.

Dr Lapelle you have true class my man.

I have Boggie with Canned Heat on Vinyl, that I purchased as a US import when it was first released and I treasure it.

In the Boogie track when the 'sunflower' breaks loose you better be sat down. That just sends shivers up and down my spine.

I could not agree with you more... And I still have my original UK vinyl mono album - sounds even better than this cd!
