    HISTORICAL FIGURES AND ANCIENT HEADS is a 2002 album by the blues-rock banmd Canned Heat.
    Personnel: Little Richard (vocals, piano); Joel Scott Hill (vocals, guitar); Bob Hite (vocals); Harvey Mandel, Henry Vestine (guitar); Charles Lloyd (flute); Clifford Solomon (saxophone); Ernest Lane (piano, keyboards); Adolfo de la Parra (piano, drums); Ray Bushbaum (piano); Kevin Burton (organ).
    Recording information: Village Recorder, Los Angeles, Claifornia.
    Arrangers: Adolfo de la Parra; Little Richard.
    Adding Joel Scott Hill to the band, Canned Heat was infused with a bit of much-needed new blood. While nothing here found favor with AM radio, FM saw fit to include such cuts as "Cherokee Dance," "Utah," and the Heat's collaboration with Little Richard, "Rockin' with the King." Full of the usual boogie, Historical Figures and Ancient Heads still comes off as a rather pale reminder of just how bluesy this band once was. New blood or not, this disc didn't do much in the way of revitalizing Canned Heat's faltering career -- they appear to have become old before their time. ~ James Chrispell
