Canned Heat

Jerry Gilbert, Sounds, 1 July 1972

THE drive out to Topanga Canyon from Hollywood along Sunset is quite a heady experience in itself and when Bob "The Bear" Hite is there to greet you half way up the twisting pass through the Canyon, the experience is complete. Canned Heat had just returned from a tour of Australia and Hite later talked about the group’s last disastrous British tour and the new album Mythical Figures And Ancient Head , which features Little Richard and Charles Lloyd amongst others.
