CANNED HEAT Live At Montreux 1973 Eagle (2011)

Canned Heat

Hard living and equally hard working blues rock at its best and Canned Heat at their peak. Led by Bob 'The Bear' Hite, the band featured a dirty rock'n'roll blues rhythm and guitar lines to rock.

With slide and harmonica aplenty and some great keyboard lines, this is a stand out set, despite the far from perfect recording quality.

The band open with the classic 'On The Road Again', which all will know, even if you don't know it. It's this kind of sound that influenced George Thorogood so much. 'Please Mr Nixon' is a long and slow blues workout (think Nicky Moore) and is one of four to feature Clarence Gatemouth Brown.

Another track you'll know is 'Let's Work Together', and 'Shake'n'Boogie', with a nod to Savoy Brown, is jammed and drum solo-ed all the way to 14 minutes.

If you like good 70s blues rock this is it!
