Canned Heat ‎– Live At Montreux 1973 Recorded live at the Montreux Jazz Festival, July 1, 1973

Canned Heat, the doomed boogie-blues revivalists, only made a lone appearance at the legendary Montreux Jazz Festival. Yet they still managed some star-crossed magic.

By 1973, co-frontman Alan “Blind Owl” Wilson had already tragically passed, an overdose victim at just 27. Stepping in, however, with Bob “The Bear” Hite and the rest of his Delta-rocking brethren was Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, giving this recording a vibrating once-in-a-lifetime specialness.

Already huge festival draws, after signature appearances at Monterey Pop in 1967 and Woodstock in 1969, this Los Angeles-based unit didn’t have much to prove at this point. Yet Canned Heat remained present and joyfully engaged, egged on no doubt by the outsized personality of the late multi-instrumentalist Brown.

Hite is gone too, of course, dead at 36 after a suffering a post-gig heart attack in Hollywood. Drummer Aldolpho “Fito” de la Parra, featured here, continues the Canned Heat legacy today.
