Possibly one of the greatest blues albums ever recorded.

1. "Messin' with the Hook" 3:23

3. "Send Me Your Pillow" 4:48
4. "Sittin' Here Thinkin'" 4:07

6. "Alimonia Blues" 4:31
7. "Driftin' Blues" 4:57
8. "You Talk Too Much" 3:16
9. "Burnin' Hell" (Bernard Besman, Hooker) 5:28
10. "Bottle Up and Go" 2:27
11. "The World Today" 7:47
12. "I Got My Eyes on You" 4:26
13. "Whiskey and Wimmen'" 4:37
14. "Just You and Me" 7:42
15. "Let's Make It" 4:06
16. "Peavine" 5:07
17. "Boogie Chillen No. 2" 11:33


This album is one of the few albums ever released that really define a genre and style of music. 25 years after John Lee Hooker started recording music, he hooked up with the California blues/rock band to record this staple.

From tracks like Driftin Blues/Drifter, you can hear the slow lament for which Hooker is famous, peppered by the harp of Alan Wilson (who unfortunately died shortly after the recording of this album).

And then there's the other thing that made Hooker (and subsequently, Canned Heat) famous: The Boogie. Out of all the John Lee Hooker albums I've heard, there is not a single one that epitomizes his famous single-chord stomp.

This is truly a classic album, in every sense of the word, and should be in every blues fans' collection.

If you like CCR, John Lee Hooker, Charley Patton, Foghat, and The Blues Breakers, you'll like Canned Heat.
