Canned Heat Lost Live Club Show 1967

Enjoy this incredible rare piece of
 Canned Heat History!!

Hey Friends, here's again some very rare stuff from
the Canned Heat.
From the attached text file:
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!

13 tracks = 60:45 minutes

1st Set
1  I went to Church this morning(?) (Talking Blues)
2  Big Road Blues
3  There's something on your Mind(?) (Talking Blues)
4  Dust my Broom
4  This is Hit
5  She's 19 Years old
6  Bullfrogg Blues
7  Blues Shuffle feat. Henry
8  Instr. Outro

2nd Set
9  Madman Blues
10 Terraplane Blues
11 Rollin' & Tumblin'
12 Catfish Blues

Robert Jr. Lockwood - Live - Chicago Blues Festival, Grant Park, Chicago, IL 1995-06-02

 A real treat here!
Robert Jr. Lockwood

Born: March 27, 1915 in Turkey Scratch AR
Died: November 21, 2006 in Cleveland OH

Mentored in the blues by the legendary Robert Johnson, Robert Lockwood Jr. was, well into the new millennium, the most accomplished champion of Johnson's Delta-born guitar style. Although Lockwood recorded sporadically throughout his lifetime, and the constant questions about Johnson often irritated the guitarist, he quietly forged a significant career than would win him two W.C. Handy Awards, a Grammy™ Award, and induction into the Blues Hall of Fame. Lockwood would influence a generation of younger bluesmen, including B.B. King.

Lockwood was born in 1915 in a rural village known as "Turkey Scratch," west of Helena, Arkansas, although his birthplace is often credited as Marvell AR. Not much is known of Lockwood's early life, save that he began playing the organ in his father's church at 8 years of age. After his parents were divorced, his mother Esther took up with Delta blues legend Robert Johnson, who lived with the women, when not on the road performing, for over a decade.
The young Robert abandoned organ in favor of guitar, and was taught the rudiments of the instrument by Johnson, who had become the boy's de facto "stepfather." By the age of 15, Lockwood was performing professionally around Helena, sometimes with Johnson, but typically with Sonny Boy Williamson II (Rice Miller) or Johnny Shines. Throughout the 1930s, Lockwood played juke joints, fish fries, house parties, and street corners throughout the Mississippi Delta region, where he was known as "Robert Junior" due to his relationship with Johnson.
After Johnson's death in 1938, Lockwood began to make a musical legacy of his own. Lockwood was one of the first bluesmen to begin playing an electric guitar, and he would expand beyond the country blues of the Mississippi Delta to include jazzier elements in his sound. During the late 1930s and early 1940s, Lockwood would travel between Helena, Memphis, St. Louis, and Chicago. He performed as both a solo act and as a duo with Williamson, appearing regularly on the harp player's King Biscuit Time radio program on KFFA radio in Helena. Lockwood also played with Howlin' Wolf in Memphis.

Lockwood made his first recordings in 1941 for Bluebird Records, traveling to Aurora, Illinois to record four songs, including "Take A Little Walk With Me" and "Little Boy Blue,"staples of the guitarist's live shows for decades. Lockwood continued to perform across the south throughout the 1940s, finally moving to Chicago in 1950, where he would become a session player for Chess Records. During the 1950s, Lockwood would record and perform with a number of the blues biggest stars, including Little Walter, Sunnyland Slim, and Muddy Waters, among many others.

Big Joe Turner LIVE Baden-Baden, Germany 1970


May 18, 1911, November 24, 1985

one of the true giants of music! 

 He was among the first to mix R&B with boogie-woogie, resulting in jump blues - a style that presaged the birth of rock and roll. The jump blues that Big Joe helped birth shook up R&B and got the world ready for rock 'n' roll
Providing an essential link between the blues and rock 'n' roll, Big Joe Turner is best remembered for his classic 1954 hit "Shake, Rattle and Roll," one of the pioneering songs of rock 'n' roll. Although Turner enjoyed his greatest recorded success with Atlantic Records between 1951 and 1956, rock 'n' roll was actually his second (or third) successful musical career. He started out as an important member of the burgeoning Kansas City jazz scene and helped popularize boogie woogie in the late '30s with pianist Pete Johnson. He also pursued an influential career as one of the most potent blues shouters of the '40s. He was one of the few jazz and blues singers of his generation to become popular with the teenage rock 'n' roll audience. After spending the '60s in relative obscurity, Big Joe Turner returned to jazz and blues, singing on the Pablo label with the likes of Count Basie and Jimmy Witherspoon.

G. Love & Special Sauce - Live @ Woodstock Festival, USA, 23-07-1999

G. Love & Special Sauce 
is an alternative hip-hop band from Philadelphia. They are known for their unique, "sloppy", and "laid back" blues sound that encompasses classic R&B. Their laid-back, sloppy blues sound is quite unique, as it encompasses the sound/production of classic R&B and recent rap artists (the Beastie Boys, in particular)The band features Garrett Dutton, better known as G. Love, Jeffrey Clemens on drums, and Jim Prescott on bass.

The group toured heavily, also landing a subsequent spot on the H.O.R.D.E. tour, and found a receptive young audience. They followed up this success with the more mature Coast to Coast Motel in 1995. Although it didn't sell as well as the debut, it was definitely a stronger album. On tour, the group nearly broke up due to bickering over finances. They decided to take a break from each other, while G. Love worked on a new album with three different bands (All Fellas Band, Philly Cartel, and King's Court) and special guest Dr. John.

Soon, though, G. Love & Special Sauce made amends, and the next album featured Special Sauce plus combinations of the three other groups. Yeah, It's That Easy was released in October 1997, and it turned out to be a soul-inflected effort, more similar to their debut than their second album. G. Love & Special Sauce soon embarked on another world tour, returning in 1999 with Philadelphonic. Released in 2001, Electric Mile was another solid release, but it was also G. Love's most schizophrenic album yet, incorporating hip-hip, funk, psychedelia, blues, and soul in equal and ambitious measure. Mile was followed by extensive touring. By 2004 and the Hustle LP, G. Love had eased up a little on the kitchen sink approach, offering instead a cohesive, dry groove reminiscent of his earliest efforts. Hustle was also the first G. Love release under Jack Johnson's Brushfire Records banner. It made sense; the two had been pals at least since Philadelphonic, on which Johnson had guested. His move from Sony spawned The Best of G. Love & Special Sauce, but G. Love wasn't done. Special Sauce did a series of shows in 2004 with Johnson and fellow Brushfire artist Donavon Frankenreiter, and the trio also found time to issue a brief live EP before 2006's Lemonade. The live album A Year & a Night with G. Love & Special Sauce appeared in 2007. The studio album Superhero Brother followed in 2008. After a six-year break, the original G. Love & Special Sauce lineup (feat. Clemens and Prescott) reunited for 2014's Sugar.
