‘On their 1968 album Living The Blues, Canned Heat set some kind of jam endurance record with the live 40 minute track “Refried Hockey Boogie”. The New York quartet Endless Boogie go even further – 79 minutes on their fantastic, note perfect update of electric blues drone and railroad rhythm, Focus Level (No Quarter). The album is divided into 10 so-to-speak songs, such as the Can-like chug “The Manly Vibe’ and “Executive Focus” as a dead ringer for a 1971 Pink Fairies wig out. But the cumulative effect of the hog sneeze distortion, twin guitar skirmishes and John Lee Hooker style chooglin’ is a non stop stoner-rock-delight. The vocals are cartoon-demon yowling, but the rest is as authentic as my old Groundhogs LPs. Singer – guitarist Top Dollar (the band members use pseudonyms) is also a renowned rare record dealer – real name Paul Major – who has now made an album as freaky as those he sells.”
