"It may take some searching to find this title, since it's out of print, but if you can find it for [$$] or less, please don't pass it up. This Heat lineup absolutely burned and boogied, and James T. was a great frontman who did The Bear proud. (He also played a mean slide.) Also, I disagree with the previous reviewer about sound problems with this release. I'm no major audiophile, but as far as live recordings go of bar/club shows, this sounds great. Every instument/vocal is easily heard and there is no muddiness, as he stated."
Henry and Larry together after 17 years

"This is a good live recording from the fall of 1987. At that time Canned Heat was a four piece band, including three members (Fito de la Parra, Henry Vestine and Larry Taylor) from "the classical lineup" in the late sixties. Seventeen years earlier, just before the Woodstock festival, Larry Taylor had refused to ever again appear on the same stage with Henry Vestine, but he obviously changed his mind. This album was also the first album that singer/guitarrist/harmonica player James Thornbury recorded with Canned Heat. Thornbury fronted the band until 1995, when he was replaced by Robert Lucas (who in turn was replaced by Dallas Hodge in 2000). The album includes decent versions of their hits with some new material. My personal favorite is the last song "Boogie", which sounds just as good as it ever did in the 60s."

"This is a terrible technical miss, the mid-ranges are way over boosted and muddy, and the overall sound quality poor. Buy it only if you need one of the tracks for your collection."
