Canned Heat

Canned Heat ‎- Live At Topanga Corral - 1970 - Wand

Live at Topanga Corral is a 1970 live album by Canned Heat. The album is taken from a 1968 concert at the Kaleidoscope in Hollywood, California and not at the Topanga Corral in western Los Angeles County as the title suggests. Canned Heat was under contract to Liberty Records at the time and Liberty did not want to do a live album, so manager Skip Taylor told Liberty that the album had been recorded in 1966 or 1967 (when CH were not under contract) at the Topanga Corral and sold a live tape of a Canned Heat Kaleidoscope gig recorded in July 1968 to Wand Records to avoid legal complications. The album has been released under dozens of different titles and track listings. SQ is fair to good, but gives a good idea of the late ‘70’s raw blues boogie sound of one of the greatest rock bands of all time. Has anybody heard of a remastered issue of this album?
