“Kings Of The Boogie” by Canned Heat - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1981Album Chart of the Decade: 1980s

TJR says

This Status Quo cheezefest is the worst yet. With the limited success of 1978’s “Human Condition” Bob Hite attempted to gee things up by hiring a large enthusiastic biker with the moniker “The Push” as their manager, hoping that the band’s popularity with the biker community would give them renewed energy. With new bass player Ernie Rodriguez joining the ranks, Canned Heat recorded the 1981 album, “Kings of the Boogie”, which proved to be the last album to feature Hite on a few of the tracks. On April 5, 1981, having collapsed from a heroin overdose during a show at the Palomino in Los Angeles, Bob Hite was later found dead in drummer Adolfo de la Parra’s Mar Vista home at the age of just 38. The curse of Canned Heat had struck once again…
