    Blues fanatics who sadly seem to take the drug reference that is their name a little too much to heart.
    + one bass player who went on to play with Tom Waits

    man... that post was spot on... I couldn't remember why my dad had so much and used it for a lot of stuff (including fixing old gas powered tools) my dad was an inventor and one of his inventions he ended up selling to the pinkertons... it involved fire detection and my dad made these little house (like a foot tall) that had the sensors and meters and stuff (I was a little kid) and when he demoed the solution, he'd basically set fire using sterno inside the the little house (made of hammered aluminum) it was a cool demo with LOTS of fire but you could do the demonstration in a meeting room on a regular table...

    and because we had a bunch of sterno around the garage my dad used it for all kinds of stuff... I had a healthy fear of fire (from the demonstrations) but also loved to burn stuff like any kid...

    I think I've got a case of sterno at home.. I'm gonna bust some out this weekend just to smell it...

    I was thinking about how you can go to an Antique Mall and almost any USA item made of Copper is worth a nice price. But not those Chafing Dish thingies. Because the supply is great and actual use of chafing dishes at parties is essentially extinct. We bought a couple of these rigs and they're gorgeously made in and great condition, so many parts and fully complete, and the vendor was just willing to give it away. $ 20 or something. They're displayed on top of the upper level kitchen cabinets.

    They run on Sterno, of course, but I'm not rushing out to get some.

    For me, Canned Heat was the original line up with Blind Owl and Bear, and even the Harvey Mandel. But once Bear checked out, it was over. I give them credit for getting John Lee Hooker back in the spotlight.

    Add Hoppe's #9, as well, to the memory-triggering smell list for me.

    Though I am not a gun guy, my Dad was into guns, so I know that scent very well, too.
    My Dad once said that they oughta make an aftershave that smelled like it.

    Not terribly well written but an interesting subject, probably more for Alan Wilson's influence in the revival of Delta Blues, that had a major effect on music in America and Britain in the '60s. But if you want to get Canned Heat, it's all here.

    They do make air fresheners with it...the kind that hangs from your rearview mirror, and shaped just like the bottle. :) Someone even makes a candle that smells like it.

    Als hits stand the test of time, the long jams not so much. Havey Mandels playing was "progressive", ie bad timing. Al and to a much lesser extent Bob, was the band for me.
