Originally released in 1967 and 1968 on the Liberty record label. The first album consists of down-home country blues blowing. They lift a few licks from here and there, but the finished product is their own and it wails. On 'Boogie With Canned Heat' the rhythm section starts to loosen just a bit to get things going; still blues basically, but in the direction of rock. However, there is no indication on 'Boogie' of the much looser improvisational material the band were to put out in the future. 'Boogie' contains the blinding classics 'On The Road Again', 'Amphetamine Annie' and 'Evil Woman' among many others. This release contains the classic Canned Heat lineup of Bob 'The Bear' Hite, Al 'Blind Owl' Wilson, drummer Bob Cook, Henry Vestine on guitar and bassist Larry Taylor.

Back in the 60s, over here in the UK we had a blues revival led by Fleetwood Mac, Chicken Shack and some others (OK we had Alexis Korner & John Mayall around before them), and in the US Paul Butterfield (do check out East-West as a minimum requirement) and Canned Heat. This CD presents their first two albums, the more traditional and rootsy first album, and their blossoming "Boogie" album.
For me their first 3 albums were their best, but I do realise this is a personal preference. If you like electric blues with a rock edge, I can't see how you could fail to enjoy this CD/download as if you buy the CD, the autorip MP3 comes for free. The fat sound of Henry, the Sunflower guitar on tracks like Amphetamine Annie and their famous boogie has always been a joy to me, and of course there is the marvellous On The Road Again. So if you're an old fan re-visiting the past or new to the band, this album will not disappoint.
For the 2 albums I would award 4 stars to the first and 5 to the second as they are quality within their genre, but as I can't award 4.5, 4 stars will have to do. If you want the trilogy of albums, then don't forgetLiving The Blueswhich is now available in unedited form.
It's predecessor is fine as a launch point and historical reference point but Boogie (and Hallelujah,plus Hooker&Heat)
represent them at their peak.
I listened to this obsessively when it came out and I still come back to it now
