In the early 1960s, Britain was home to a blues boom as young bands like the Rolling Stones, the Yardbirds and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers discovered acoustic and electric American blues, and reworked it as something of their own. Dozens more bands took up the cause and it wasn't too long before this British phenomenon kickstarted a new wave of modern blues bands in the USA. Notable among those new bands was Canned Heat. Formed in 1966, two avid blues enthusiasts decided to transform
their acoustic jug band into an electric blues band. This LP includes a selection of studio cuts from the band in their prime, and more than ably demonstrates their timeless appeal.
