Various Artists "Dr. Boogie Presents Rarities from the Bob Hite Vaults"
This historical sampler of 78 rpm boogie and blues from Bob Hite's (Canned Heat) personal collection is an impressive and super-fine jolt of boogie huzz. Nothing revelatory here, but if you're into this kind of thing, it does make for a nice short-stack of across-the-board great picks. Artists include Pete Johnson, Elmore James, Mad Mel Sebastian, Billy Haley, Johnny Otis, Etta James and many others. Never forget the rural blues man... 7/10 -- P. Somniferum (19 February, 2008)
