That's All Right Mama (Arthur 'Bigboy' Crudup) (LP 68)

Canned Heat Future Blues (Vinyl - Liberty, 1970) ****

Genre: Blues

Places I remember: Although there is an old Marbecks Records sticker on the cover, I bought this at Real Groovy, while I worked at Marbecks. It's a tangled web!

Fab, and all the other pimply hyperboles: So Sad (The World's in a Tangle) - an extended boogie workout master class!

Gear costume: Let's Work Together - their cover was the hit single from this album.

Active compensatory factors: The fifth album from the Heat and the last with the classic line up. This is immense!

My good friends, Clay and Margo, recommended this album to me and they weren't wrong!

The band is under-rated as a studio unit. Of course, they are mostly known for their epic live work and Woodstock helped with that impression, but they can certainly work up a lather in the studio as well. 

Where do they all belong? No collection is complete without a Canned Heat best of compilation with their terrific singles like On The Road Again, and Going Up The Country.
