These rare pieces are taken from Bob Hite's fabulous collection of 78rpm records. A historical collection that helped, in its own way, save from oblivion the rural bluesmen who have dropped out of the scene decades ago and made possible their reintegration to history. Compiled by the famous DJ Dr Boogie with the help of Fito De La Parra (Canned Heat drummer).

WHERE THE HECK DID THESE RECORDINGS COME FROM ?
Bob Hite, founding member and singer of the unforgettable group Canned Heat own one of the most impressive collections of US 78rpms. He started gathering these records at a very young age. He always dreamed of being in a boogie band and paying tribute to the pioneers, drawing inspiration from all the greats who have set the foundations for blues music. Before he joined the band, he was already working in various record stores in Venice Beach, a Los Angeles suburb.
Through the years, he came to acquire extraordinary items, mostly thanks to the success of the 33rpm, which quickly replaced the 78rpm format. Bob Hite never stopped expanding his collection; he bought records all around the world. He was known to throw huge parties at his house, where he spent hours, sometimes whole nights, unveiling gems from his collection.
After Bob Hite's death, the fabulous collection was decimated, partly sold, dismembered, and even plundered...
