Los Angeles, 1965: Blues enthusiasts Alan "Blind Owl" Wilson (1943-1970) and Bob "The Bear" Hite (1943-1981) together with like-minded musicians found Canned Heat. They name the band after the title of a 1928 song by bluesman Tommy Johnson about a fuel containing methyl alcohol, also referred to as "canned heat", which is misused by alcoholics as a substitute drug. In 1967 drummer Adolfo "Fito" de la Parra who is still a member today joins Canned Heat, while otherwise the band has seen a lot of personnel turnover in the course of its history. One year later Canned Heat's successful hit single "On The Road Again" makes them popular worldwide.Fast forward to the present: Nearly 60 years after the band was founded a new studio album will be released by Ruf Records on CD and LP in April 2024. Recorded in Burbank, California, long-serving drummer Fito de la Parra was joined in the studio by the members of the band's current line-up, i.e. guitarist, keyboard player and singer Jimmy Vivino, harper and singer Dale Spalding and Richard "Rick" Reed who succeeded long-time bass player Larry "The Mole" Taylor after his death in 2019. Another musician that can be heard on the album is blues rocker Joe Bonamassa who makes a guest appearance as lead guitarist on "So Sad (The World's In A Tangle)".
