Atmospheric and energetic live recording of the Woodstock veterans. Recorded live @ 13th Blues Festival @ Biskuithalle, Bonn/Germany, 13th April 1998

The story of Canned Heat is one of imperishable music, of zeitgeist-capturing hit singles and albums and of glorious performances at epochal events like the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival and the 1969 Woodstock Festival and at legendary venues like San Francisco's Fillmore Auditorium.

And most of all, perhaps, the story of Canned Heat is one of triumphant perseverance for through all their successes and disasters the band have retained their musical integrity and commitment to playing the blues and they remain admired and active to the present day.

By the time of the band's 1998 Rockpalast gig Fito de la Parra and Larry Taylor, who had formerly played bass but was now on guitar, had been joined by singer-slide guitarist Robert Lucas and bassist Greg Kage.

During their performance the band play many of their most loved songs including „On The Road Again' on which de la Parra attempts to replicate Wilson's extraordinary, spooky vocals while the band recreate something of the mesmerizing magic of the hit record.

De la Parra also channels his inner Alan Wilson on 'Going Up The Country'. 'We're going to take you to Woodstock,' he announces before the song, an irresistible invitation for those in the audience and indeed for those of us listening now, over twenty years later. New frontman Lucas, a powerful, declamatory vocalist, sings lead on 'Let's Work Together' and also on songs like William Harris's 'Bullfrog Blues', 'Amphetamine Annie', a cautionary tale of excessive drug use originally recorded on 1968's Boogie With Canned Heat (if only the band had heeded their own warning!) and his own songs „See These Tears' and „Iron Horse'.

As the Rockpalast gig proved in 1998 and every gig since has re-emphasised, Canned Heat have never been a mere nostalgia act. Instead they have always been a blues band of compelling potency whose mastery of the idiom has now been delighting audiences for over fifty eventful years - with no end yet in sight!
