Canned Heat - Boogie With Canned Heat

There are guitarists who spend their entire lives in pursuit of the perfect distorted guitar tone. Too bad for them Henry "Sunflower" Vestine, lead guitarist for Canned Heat already nailed it. Listen to the guitar solo on "Amphetamine Annie" and try to tell me it isn't the crunchiest, most fantastically distorted guitar work you've ever heard.

Canned Heat tends to be a little underrated in comparison to their peers from the 1960s. They rocked it at Woodstock, and they somehow don't seem to get their propers. This album is great. Every single song is perfect white boy distorted blues. Anyway, if you're looking for some super crunchy blues, listen to Canned Heat.
