Canned Heat - Canned Heat

Our Shootout Winner from 2019

A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

The sound is present, lively and tonally correct, with rich, Tubey Magical vocals that are only found on these good vintage pressings. These "authentic renderings" of blues covers include classics such as Muddy Waters' Rollin' and Tumblin' and Robert Johnson's Dust My Broom.

AMG 4 Star Review

The dearth of original material on Canned Heat was less of a result of any songwriting deficiencies, but rather exemplifies their authentic renderings of traditionals such as the open-throttled boogie of "Rollin' and Tumblin'" — which is rightfully recognized as having been derived from the Muddy Waters arrangement. Similarly, a rousing reading of Robert Johnson's "Dust My Broom" is co-credited to Elmore James. Blues aficionados will undoubtedly notice references to a pair of Howlin' Wolf classics — "Smokestack Lightning" as well as "I Asked for Water (She Gave Me Gasoline)" — as part of the rambling "Road Song." While decidedly more obscure to the casual listener, Eddie "Guitar Slim" Jones "Story of My Life" is both a high point on this recording, as well as one of the fiercest renditions ever committed to tape.
