Muze PNote With the glut of Canned Heat compilations available, what makes this 19-song Capitol/EMI release better than the rest? For starters, the previously unreleased track "Henry's Shuffle," featuring guitarist Henry Vestine and recorded in 1968, which was undoubtedly the zenith year for the band; the inclusion of "Low Down (And High Up)"; the rare Liberty B-side "Time Was," and the rollicking 1970 date with Little Richard, "Rockin' With the King." Also included are several tracks that both the novice and die-hard fan alike would find essential -- three live cuts from the Monterey Pop Festival, a nod to the 1971 collaborative effort with John Lee Hooker on "Whiskey and Wimmen'," and two Woodstock era classics culled from the Boogie with Canned Heat album, "Amphetamine Annie" and "Fried Hockey Boogie." And, of course, what would a Canned Heat compilation be without the bona fide hippie hits: "On the Road Again," "Goin' Up the Country" and "Let's Work Together." These are the original versions, digitally remastered and sounding great, so ignore the glut, this really is the Very Best of Canned Heat. ~ Al Campbell

Artist Overview

One of the premier blues bands of the 1960s, Canned Heat's boogie-tinged take on the style reached a wide audience following its appearance at Woodstock. The band grew more popular after being prominently featured in the subsequent WOODSTOCK documentary film and on the companion album. Although they never achieved superstar status, Canned Heat's influence can be heard in a wide variety of bands--from ZZ Top to Phish--who place a shuffling, bluesy groove front and center.

Dirty Linen (p.65)
- "Along with its hits, it includes three live tracks from the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival....Not a bad introduction to the group's powerful blues and boogie..."
