Canned Heat in concert 1979

Canned Heat is an American blues-rock/boogie rock band that formed in Los Angeles, California in 1965.  It was launched by two blues enthusiasts, Alan Wilson and Bob Hite, who took the name from Tommy Johnson’s 1928 “Canned Heat Blues”,  After appearances at Monterey and Woodstock, at the end of the 1960s the band acquired worldwide fame.
The band 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. Two of their songs—”Going Up the Country” and “On the Road Again”—became international hits. “Going Up the Country” was a remake of the Henry Thomas’s song “Bulldoze Blues” recorded in in 1927. “On the Road Again” was a cover version/re-working of the 1953 Floyd Jones song of the same name, which is reportedly based on the Tommy Johnson song “Big Road Blues” recorded in 1928 and became a number one hit in most markets and finally put a blues song on the top charts
Producer Johnny Otis recorded the band’s first (unreleased) album in 1966  but the record was not actually released until 1970 when it appeared as Vintage Heat,
“Rollin’ and Tumblin’” backed with “Bullfrog Blues” became Canned Heat’s first single. The first official album, Canned Heat, was released three months later in July 1967. The first big live appearance of Canned Heat was at the Monterey Pop Festival on June 1
Also in 1968, after playing before 80,000 at the first annual Newport Pop Festival in September, Canned Heat left for their first European tour. It entailed a month of concert performances and media engagements that included TV appearances on the British show Top of the Pops. “On the Road Again” rose to #1 in practically in all of Europe.
Canned Heat’s popularity has endured in some European countries and Australia. In Belgium they have a particularly devoted following
The Band has endured many lineup changes throughout the decades and continues to tour and preform today.
