Reheated is the eleventh album by Canned Heat, released in 1988. It features two members of the band's classic lineup, Fito de la Parra and Larry Taylor. Two new members, accomplished musicians, have been added to revamp the band's sound without straying from the original spirit of the band. Among the titles, "Bullfrog Blues" was originally on the B-side of the first single recorded by Canned Heat in 1967; "Built for Comfort" by Willie Dixon was popularized by Howlin' Wolf; "Take Me to the River" is a R&B/soul song which has been recorded by artists such as Al Green and Talking Heads; and Tom Waits's "Gunstreet Girl" is played with a remarkable drive. This album is representative of Canned Heat's efforts to create their own music from various sources.
