AllMusic Review by

This two-fer from Beat Goes On features a pair of Canned Heat LPs, Historical Figures and Ancient Heads and The New Age, both originally issued on Liberty in 1971 and 1973 respectively. These albums highlight 17 songs including "Rockin' with the King," "Long Way from L.A.," "You Can Run, But You Sure Can't Hide," and "Election Blues." Most casual listeners would be better served by the 19-track compilation The Very Best of Canned Heat on Capitol.
