The first LP I ever bought with my own money was a Canned Heat record. Even back in the 70's Hite's collection of Blues and R&B records was renowned. This collection shows why. I have been listening to it a lot and am blown away each time. Listening to it is a visceral reminder of the roots of rock and shows why rock&roll burst out as it did. This is a fabulous compilation and I can only hope more will be forthcoming.
