Haven't seen Canned Heat gettin' any love around here lately...
I don't normally like harmonica players...but I like Blind Owl.
And Larry Taylor.
I saw back in the early 70s with Blind Owl and the Bear, don't remember who was on lead guitar. (Henry or Harvey?). Good bad.
I had the 45 Let's Work Together as a kid. I have no extensive knowledge of them, except that John Mayall visited them in CA, for a while.
I saw them around 1970 at Panther Hall in Ft Worth.....Bob Hite, "Blind" Al Wilson, Larry Taylor, and (not sure) Harvey Mandel (?) on guitar. Actually, they were scheduled to headline with several other acts in support. Someone was sick, and Canned Heat didn't even make it to town. It was announced that they would do a make-up show later on, so the main band that night was Bubble Puppy......and they were AWESOME. A few weeks later Canned Heat came,(free for those of us who had already paid) and did a full show with two or three supporting acts. So.....we saw something like six or eight bands for probably four or five dollars! And yes.....Canned Heat were at their peak and were great!
I saw the current line up of Bubble Puppy at the Saxon Pub about a month ago.
They sounded great, and are now a three guitar band!
The only founding member was Rod Prince.
They had a good turnout for a Sunday matinee gig.
Nice to hear they're still around in one form or another.....don't know anything about the personnel I saw, but do remember one guitarist used some hollow body Gibson, like a ES 175 or something.....and got amazing, controlled feedback. They were great as a "fill in" headliner.
“In the day” Rod Prince played the 175.
Todd Potter played an SG he still has.
I saw Sirius too, “in the day”, in the late 70s.
Rod played an Ibanez double cut solidbody, an Artist model, and Todd played his SG.
That was a great band, too!
Oh yeah, love some Canned Heat:
One of the original " boogie " bands. Criminally unsung...
It had to be 1970. Al Wilson died a few days before Jimi & Janis.
R.I.P. to all...
I'm thinkin' Hot Smoke and Sassafras. Is that right?
their style is not my genre that i listen too...but i like these guys...guilty pleasure band
I got to see them a couple of times. The first time was at a big rock festival where they played one song based on the "boogie" riff for the whole set. Everyone got long solos and they were quite good. The next time was at the Family Dog on the Great Highway in SF with Harvey Mandel. That was a good night as well. We lost those guys way too soon.
Canned Heat are currently touring Australia. I saw them in early 80s. Would there be any Woodstock era members in the current line up?
One of the best Woodstock performances.
