The original Canned Heat lineup, Bob (the bear) Hite vocals, Alan (the blind owl) Wilson rhythm guitar, Larry (the mole) Taylor bass guitar, Henry (the sun flower)Vestine lead guitar and Fito Dela Para drums were at their creative peak.
The band put more effort into song writing on " Boogie With Canned Heat" and did not rely on blues covers as on the fist LP.
Track 1. Evil Woman is a fine blues rock version of Larry Weiss's song with some fine guitar work from Vestine and Taylor.
Track 2. My Crime, written by band members is a song about the band's trouble with law in Denver.
Track 3. On The Road Again, brought Canned Heat into mainstream popularity. Writing credits go to Alan Wilson who also performs on harmonica and vocals. Sadly, He died of drug related causes in 1970.
Track 4. World In A Jug, upbeat tune, with some more fine distorted guitar from Vestine.
Track 5. Turpentine, a sad story about resorting to a low quality high. "Take a mouth full of sugar, drink a bottle turpentine"
Track 6. Whiskey Headed Woman, a nice remake of Tommy McClennan's recording from 1948.
Track 7. Amphetamine Annie, wow, this song is what Canned Heat rock blues style is all about, it will make your toes tap. Nice solo by Vestine.
Track 8. An Owl Song, little ditty by Alan Wilson on vocals and harmonica.
Track 9. Marie Laveau, slow blues intrumental that gives Vestine his opportunity to display his electric guitar talents.
Track 10. Fried Hockey Boogie, this song represents Canned Heat as a blues band. This is an iconic song, 11 minutes of show casing each member in the band with the Canned Heat Boogie carrying the rhythm.
