Enjoy this incredible rare piece of
Canned Heat History!!
This earliest Canned Heat live tape I found yet, was
recorded in an unknown club and feature the original
Canned Heat w/Frank Cook on Drums! Again the song-
list here include some tracks not available from any
other known Canned Heat recording! Those of you who
downloaded in June my Canned Heat compilation
"Tracks" already have nearly half of the tracks here,
but these tracks were remastered in a different way
from my own tape & here's the complete performance,
from a different source!
CANNED HEAT's Club performance here is kind of rough
and unpolished, but full of "Heat" and some tracks
here are standing clearly in the tradition of the
great "Blues Shouters" as Howlin Wolf or Big Joe
Turner! The general quality is great, but on some
tracks the Bear's vocals are quite oversaturated!
I did my best to polish this & also used the better
channel (with less dropouts) of this mono sbd
recording! MP3 sample below!
