“Historical Figures And Ancient Heads” by Canned Heat - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1971Album Chart of the Decade: 1970s

TJR says

The first Canned Heat record without Al Wilson and, boy oh boy, the formulaic boogie blues here is sure missing his character and inspiration. The unexpected guest appearance of Little Richard for “Rockin’ With The King” raises the excitement levels a tad, but even that is bordering on the generic cliche. By the time I get around to the 8 minute closer “Utah” my side notes are reading “what a chore”…
