Boogie With Canned Heat - Expanded Edition
Boogie With Canned Heat was the artistic and
commercial high water mark for this talented group that was
based in Los Angeles and steeped in the blues tradition.
This album, the band's second, began with sessions in
Chicago with some blues covers that mined much the same area
as their excellent first release. A funny thing happened
when the band returned to the studio however as they came up
with outstanding self-written material and wound up
concentrating on their own creations for the album release.
The earlier blues covers are added as bonus tracks along
with an early take of "On the Road Again."
In the spring of 1968 "On the Road Again" was released as
the b-side of a new single and when a Texas D.J. turned the
record over and began playing the track it took off. The
song quickly topped their playlist and swept gradually
across the country, eventually becoming a huge hit for the
band. The album was carried along by the success of the
single and became the band’s most popular release.
This expanded edition of the album includes a sparkling new
mastering and a new essay as well as the aforementioned
blues covers that did not make the final cut for the initial
release. This work represents the pinnacle of Canned Heat's
work in the studio.
