Future Blues is the fifth album by American rock band Canned Heat, released in 1970. It was the last to feature the band's classic lineup, as Larry Taylor and Harvey Mandel departed soon after its release and songwriter Alan Wilson died later that year. It was also the only classic-era Canned Heat studio album to feature Mandel, as Henry Vestine had been the lead guitarist on the previous albums.
The Best of Canned Heat - Let's Work Together.
The final Canned Heat album to feature co-founder Alan Wilson, Future Blues was also one of their best, surprisingly restrained as a studio creation by the band, the whole thing clocking in at under 36 minutes, as long as some single jams on their live discs. It was also one of their most stylistically diverse efforts.

It seems this song was another candidate as a single, but didn't make it. Mandel's guitar playing is great. All in all, Future Blues qualifies as one of the best pure blues rock albums. For those lucky enough to own the original pressings of the LP, a comic book about the band was included as an extra. Mandel would stay with the band when it played Woodstock, but was not included in a major way for any other album. Vestine would eventually return. The album seems more focused and less boogie-fied than prior Canned Heat efforts, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. This reissue features five mostly interesting bonus tracks, including the tighter mono single version of Let's Work Together.
