Another Canned Heat / Friday Music Remasters Series from the vaults and archives of Fito De La Parra, "Live At The Turku Rock Festival" showcases this hard-working boogie band at their peak of their post- Woodstock fame. Led by the big man Bob Hite, The Heat cook up over an hour of rock, blues, country blues and hit songs from their catalog of albums. Recorded in Finland in 1971, the band was touring to support their worldwide hit album "Historical Figures and Ancient Heads." With a new line up featuring Joel Scott Hill, Antonio De La Bareda, along side founders Hite, De La Parra, and Henry Vestine, this band could do no wrong. Check out the classic hit "Let's Work Together" with Hite's incredible vocals and Canned Heat's tight chemistry on stage. This band really was the consummate blues band of the era and it shows throughout this live performance. A healthy dose of tracks from the aforementioned " Historical Figures and Ancient Heads" album are in order as " Hill's Stomp", " Long Way From L.A" and others are featured on this disc. No Canned Heat album is complete without a boogie, and here you get "Canned Heat Boogie" This lengthy jam is seeing its first release in North America, and this rarity is just one of the many fine tunes on this fine live recording. Remastered from the original concert tapes, this authorized edition of "Live At The Turku Rock Festival" is just the right album for your blues, rock and boogie needs....Rock On!
Back From Bluze H'ven But I Lost My Socks On The Trip!

"Remember "ole Jayke" is an old time Delta Blues, Chicago Style Black Electric Blues man..it is tuff for me to get into the white bands but I for one had my socks knocked off when I listened to this cd. I was blown away by "live Heat." "The Heat" have to be one of the few "white boy bands" who can create that Chicago Sound. Heat live cook and jam better than on a studio work. "She Don't Want Me No More" sounds like a Blues festival circa 60s song...lawrdy shake your money maker! "Let's Work Together" justs jumps at you, grabs you and gets you rockin and never lets go. Start clappin your hands chillun on this song. They get into a major guitar jam....rock me baby. They immediately go into their other big Heat "On The Road Again" which is hot but they play it pretty straight but do go nuts with knock down guitar solos. "That's All Right" is like a "Wolf" song with out the growlin..dig da harmonica. "Hill Stomp" didn't do much for me...too much like ZZ Top. "From L.A." is a great 50s type dance tune..bobby socks and all. "Watch Yourself" is a typical Heat Blues tune....they work it and work it....jam city....I could see John Lee on this one .."too bad he ain't." Heat loves to boogie (Boogie With The Hook) and I think ZZ Top must have stole The Heat's Beat. In the middle of the "Boogie With The Heat" the drummer goes absolutely insane music wise and must do a mega minute drum solo...lawdry have mercy on me...these boys like to cook and boogie. Before they leave Turku, they get down and dirty on "Late Night Blues." This song would be right at home in Chicago in the 50s. Forget who is in the band....let the music move you and get you into a groove where you just zone out on some good blues. Just remember "Joliet Jayke" try's to speak from his soul to all you good blues lovers out there."
