I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Los Angeles - Cleopatra Records are happy to announce the release of three unreleased live albums by legendary blues rock band Canned Heat! Canned Heat is an American blues/boogie rock band that formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1965. The group has been noted for its own interpretations of blues material as well as for efforts to promote the interest in this type of music and its original artists. It was launched by two blues enthusiasts, Alan Wilson and Bob Hite, who took the name from Tommy Johnson's 1928 “Canned Heat Blues”. After appearances at the Monterey and Woodstock festivals at the end of the 1960s, the band acquired worldwide fame.
