Original Notes - Canned Heat first recorded a Christmas single in 1968 as a novelty follow-up to their signature hit "On The Road Again". One side was an unlikely pairing with 'The Chipmunks' (the speeded-up voice of Liberty Records' Ross Bagdasarian), the other an impromptu studio blues, "Christmas Blues".Both are here along with two other versions of "Christmas Blues", one from an unspecified date with Dr John, the other - featuring John Popper from Blues Traveler on vocals & harmonica and Eric Clapton on guitar - from a 1998 Special Olympics Charity Concert in Washington, DC.
To complete this seasonal package the rest of these tracks were recorded in 2006 by the current Canned Heat line-up along with an old friend, blind keyboard player Jay Spell.
THE SHEER HORROR!!
