Canned Heat - Live At Montreux is another gem from the Eagle Rock Entertainment collection. This concert on DVD, from 1973, not only portrays the great Bob ‘The Bear’ Hite in action, it’s one of the finest shows in existence containing some of the original and early lineup. It’s also a fine tribute to just how raw and spontaneous the blues-rock stage shows of the late sixties and early Seventies were. Furthermore, when someone states (and they often do) that Canned Heat was the exemplary white blues band of the era, this recorded footage is testimonial to the fact that they were at least on a pedestal with the best. It was the ‘boogie’ part of their music style, from the school of John Lee Hooker, that set them apart from their counterparts in the subliminal genus of ‘white boys play the blues’.
