I only knew the hit singles and about their appearance at Woodstock. Well, I wore this tape out from playing it so much.
This is a great electric blues album. It's a shame that this is out of print on CD.

This lineup went into the studio to record with John Lee Hooker the tracks that would yield the double album, Hooker 'n Heat. The band had originally met Hooker at the airport in Portland , Oregon , and discovered they were fans of each other's work.
Hooker and Canned Heat became good friends and Hooker had stated that Wilson was "the greatest harmonica player ever". The rest of the album featured Hooker with some backing by the group sans Bob Hite, who co-produced the album along with Skip Taylor.
The album was finished after Wilson's passing and became the first album in Hooker's career to make the charts, topping out at 73 in February Shortly after the original Hooker 'n Heat sessions, Wilson, who had always suffered from depression, was said by some to have attempted suicide by driving his van off the road near Hite's home in Topanga Canyon. Unlike other members of the band, Wilson did not have much success with women and was deeply upset and frustrated by this. His depression also worsened over time.
De la Parra and other members of the band believed that his death was a suicide. Wilson died at the age of 27 , on the same day that Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi died and just weeks before Jimi Hendrix , and then Janis Joplin , died, the latter two also at age The band still had a touring contract for September, as well as upcoming studio dates. These performances were recorded, but the recordings were not released until much later, with the albums Live at Turku Rock Festival in and Under the Dutch Skies —74 in which encompassed three separate tours.
At the end of a new studio album, Historical Figures and Ancient Heads , was released. This lineup of Hite, Vestine, Scott Hill, de la Barreda and de la Parra did not last, as the band was in disarray; Scott Hill and de la Barreda's attitudes were not fitting in with the rest of the band, and drummer de la Parra decided to call it quits.
He was talked out of it by Hite, and it was Scott Hill and de la Barreda who left the band instead. The era of the late s was changing, but nonetheless the band embarked on another European tour, during which they recorded a session with Memphis Slim in Paris for the album Memphis Heat.
Met with hard times, de la Parra writes that the band resorted to importing drugs from Mexico to make ends meet between shows. After a bad introduction to Atlantic Records, which included a brawl between Hite and Vestine over a vending machine, the band released the album One More River to Cross in On a subsequent promotional tour of Europe, this new "horn band" sound included the talents of Clifford Solomon and Jock Ellis.
Absent from Canned Heat at this time, after growing ever more distant, was longtime manager Skip Taylor, who had left after the band joined Atlantic. The masters for the bulk of the material, which had been kept at Skip Taylor's house, were destroyed in a fire, and what material was rescued by de la Parra was finally restored and issued decades later, in , titled The Ties That Bind.
Bob Hite, in a foul rage, went off on the crowd, to the disapproval of Vestine, James Shane and Ed Beyer, who quit the band as a result. Taking the place of those who departed were pianist Gene Taylor and guitarist Chris Morgan, who both joined in late Taylor departed in in response to an argument during a tour of Germany, and after a brief fill-in by Stan Webb of Chicken Shack , Mark Skyer came in as the new guitar player. Despite the appearance of the Chambers Brothers on the album, it was met with very little success, largely because of the growing popularity of disco music in the late 70s.
The Bear promptly hired a new bass player, Richard Exley, after befriending him on tour and watching his performance with the band Montana. Becoming fast friends with Hite, Exley toured the remainder of the year with the band and collaborated with Hite on many of the arrangements during their Texas Bicentennial Comeback Tour.
Exley then quit the band after an argument over Hite's excessive drinking and drug use on stage. Nine Below Zero. Sonny Boy Williamson II. TV Mama. Lou Willie Turner. Rollin' and Tumblin'.
