Exclusively for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). Ironically, it was not really recorded at the famed Topanga Corral. It is a better album than some critics believe. Bob "The Bear" Hite is in fine voice and the old bluesmen are given respectful treatment in the covers.

Canned Heat appeared at most major musical events at the end of the 1960s and they were able to deliver on stage electrifying performances of blues standards and their own material and occasionally to indulge into lengthier 'psychedelic' solos. Two of their songs - "Going Up the Country" and "On the Road Again" - became international hits; both were re-workings of obscure blues. Before joining Canned Heat he had been a session bassist for The Monkees and Jerry Lee Lewis. He is the younger brother of Mel Taylor, long-time drummer for The Ventures. Taylor played with Canned Heat from 1967 to 1970, and appeared with them at various festivals including the Monterey International Pop Festival and Woodstock. His band nickname was "The Mole. In addition to playing bass, he also played lead guitar on occasion.

The record has been bootlegged and reissued countless times, and is.
