Canned Heat Live At Topanga Corral on Colored LP
First Pressing on Colored Vinyl
Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
The Topanga Corral (at 2034 Topanga Canyon Road) was a raucous club in Topanga Canyon, 20 miles west of Hollywood, an enclave that was home to Neil Young, Stephen Stills, Linda Ronstadt and other members of L.A.'s country rock aristocracy. Canned Heat often played there, but not for the 1969 sessions that resulted in this album despite its title.
By then, the band was contracted to Liberty, which had already issued the charting LP's Canned Heat, Boogie With Canned Heat and Living The Blues. To avoid trouble with Liberty, producer Skip Taylor claimed the tapes had been cut in 1966 or '67 when the players were still unsigned.
So, where was it done? At the Kaleidoscope on Sunset Blvd, a 1500 seat psychedelic L.A. ballroom known for an 80-foot revolving stage. The players included Bob Hite (vocals), Alan Wilson (vocals, harmonica, slide guitar), Henry Vestine (lead guitar), Larry Taylor (bass) and Fito de la Parra (drums).
Featuring "Bullfrog Blues," "Dust My Broom" and other signature jams, the music reflects the deep blues and rock roots of the group and soon became a collector's item. Cleopatra Records is pleased to offer the vintage 6-song set on colored vinyl presented in a deluxe package with sequentially numbered cards!
