    I played my copy tonight and love the quality of this pressing, and the song selection for the record. Wish they would put out a second vinyl LP of Alan songs to include the rest of the music from the expanded CD pressing. None of these in any of the many record stores I visit here in California. I only found my copy here on Discogs.

      I believe this just got repressed. I'm on MR's subscription service and just received a copy.

        This is a killer record. Almost everything put out by Canned Heat that doesn't feature Alan Wilson at the fore strikes me as mediocre white guy blues. But Blind Owl... his singing has a suburban hollowness to it. This is a compliment. Leadbelly said "Never was a white man had the blues. Cause he ain't got nothing to worry about." Blind Owl's blues aren't about worrying, they're about existentialism. And it's Mississippi Records, so everything about it is good.

            A nice collection of some of Alan Wilson's best songs with Canned Heat. Eleven of the tracks here are taken from the twenty track CD compilation, Alan Wilson: The Blind Owl. Pressing is very nice with detailed sound and quiet playback. Comes with a small linear note booklet that is rather informative. Let's hope there is a Volume 2 to complete this collection on vinyl. Recommended.
