Cookbook/The Best Of by Canned Heat
After Canned Heat’s mind blowing and groundbreaking performance at Woodstock in 1969, the good folks at Liberty Records honored their rock and blues champions with an amazing LP overview of their most memorable and fan driven favorites titled Cookbook: The Best Of Canned Heat. This exciting collection features the brilliant and sorely missed lead vocals of Bob “The Bear” Hite, the vocals and classic guitar styling of the late great Alan “Blind Owl” Wilson, the driving bass of Larry “The Mole” Taylor, the powerful drums of Fito de La Parra, plus the deeply missed guitar wizardry of Henry “Sunflower” Vestine.
This original mammoth collection had something for everybody as it culled the hits not only from the Liberty vaults, but deeper album tracks and underground radio classics from the late-'60s period of the band’s output. Therefore, a good majority of the smash singles and definitive Canned Heat tracks are included on this career compendium of songs which will forever stand the test of time.
Their most familiar songs like the "Goin’ Up The Country", "On The Road Again" and "Bullfrog Blues" are all featured. Plus even more Canned Heat anthems are included like the lengthy power jam "Fried Hockey Boogie" from Boogie With Canned Heat as well as the jump blues of "Same All Over" from Hallelujah.
The music of the legendary Canned Heat has made them one of the most loved bands of all time. Their concerts were history making events, their albums and songs were of superstar proportion, and the cosmic energy between each individual member made them one of the most revered classic rock bands in music history!
Friday Music is honored to be the torchbearer for some of the finest music ever recorded by Canned Heat, and it is with much honor they announce the first time audiophile vinyl release of Canned Heat Cookbook: The Best Of Canned Heat. As with the Hooker ‘N’ Heat 180g release, this limited edition audiophile event was mastered impeccably from the original Liberty Records stereo tapes by Joe Reagoso and Ron McMaster. This wonderful album also now features all of the original album length versions of the original ten tracks, as well as the first time addition of their massive 1970 smash single "Let’s Work Together" in stereophonic sound.
For this special limited edition release, Friday is also including the original gatefold artwork which includes a bevy of rare photos as well as the original liner notes. And as always, they include a protective vinyl sleeve for the fine album cover and a poly-lined sleeve for the audiophile vinyl disc to help keep your musical investment in mint shape!

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
