Future Blues

LP (Item 631400) Liberty, 1970 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold
Also available
Canned Heat — Future Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD 11.99
A record with a space age cover, but a set that's every bit as raw and rootsy as all of the previous Liberty Records releases by Canned Heat! The group have really upped their chops here – and guitarist Harvey Mandel really sounds amazing, and is bringing in some of the funky elements that he was using on his own records at the time – almost even making things more complex at times, at a level that hides some of the bluesy elements at the core – a factor that's OK with us, because we love the funky bits so much! But there's also plenty of blues, too – and the vocals of Bob Hite sound as nice as ever – on titles that include "Let's Work Together", "Sugar Bee", "That's All Right Mama", "Skat", "London Blues", "So Sad", and "Shake It & Break It".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner, some ring and edge wear, and a half split top seam.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Liberty (Japan), 1968. Very Good+
The record that really broke Canned Heat out of the pack – still plenty bluesy, but with the trippier touches you might guess from the cover's psychedelic image – a perfect summation of that unique placement the group had on the late 60s Cali scene! The record's the one that gave the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Canned Heat

Hallelujah
Liberty, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold
A late 60s classic from Canned Heat – a record that captures the group during that moment when their unique blend of styles was really on fire! There's a grittier, almost noisier vibe going on here at times – fuzz turned up a bit more than before, and maybe a bit more attitude – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Canned Heat
Liberty, 1967. Very Good+
A seminal blending of blues roots with some of the new energy taking place on the Bay Area scene in the 60s – that great "old is new" approach that worked wonderfully for a few key groups – especially those like Canned Heat, who were committed to bringing plenty of their own ...

Sugarloaf

Spaceship Earth
Liberty, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
The searing second album from Sugarloaf – a set that has Jerry Corbetta wailing even more heavily on the organ than before, and the group working with the kind of razor-sharp intensity that made them such a big act at the time! Corbetta also handles most of the lead vocals, but the group ... LP, Vinyl record album

A hell of a record from Supertramp – the set that catapulted them into global stardom after a late 70s run of really great, but overlooked albums!
