Canned Heat – Future Blues – Limited Edition 180 Gram Gatefold LP

Canned Heat – Future Blues – Limited Edition 180 Gram Gatefold LP

Elemental Music together with Universal Music USA proudly presents the first vinyl reissue in 30 years of this classic Blues-Rock masterpiece. Released in 1970, FUTURE BLUES was the last CANNED HEAT album to feature the band’s classic lineup (Larry Taylor and Harvey Mandel departed soon after the LP was issued, and songwriter Alan Wilson died later that year). Two songs from the album became hits: the cover version of Wilbert Harrison’s “Let’s Work Together,” and “London Blues,” which features the famed New Orleans legend, Malcolm John Rebennack, aka Dr. John.
