"In the summer, the scene would move en masse to Ostend, Belgium's equivalent to Blackpool. DJ Freddy Cousaert played at the Groove, a late night downstairs bar frequented by US marines, tourists and prostitutes – it was Cousaert who later looked after Marvin Gaye during his 80s sejourn in Ostend.

  1. Thank you for highlighting this wonderful live album. It's one of my favorites by Canned Heat, and one of their last to feature co-founder, vocalist, and multi instrumentalist Alan "Blind Owl" Wilson.

    If you have a few moments, I hope you'll check out my website dedicated to him at BlindOwlBio.com. I've also been honored to help with a family authorized tribute website at AlanWilsonCannedHeat.com. I'm sure you will enjoy that one as well; it contains many rare photos, memorabilia, video links, and even song downloads.

    Thanks for remembering Canned Heat, and as their singer Bob Hite always said, don't forget to boogie!
