Here is a program of blues sung and played by John Lee Hooker. The swing, the
tenderness and the passion. You will be captivated by these earthy, down home
John Lee Hooker himself did not know his exact date of birth. If he hadn't died
at around the age of 80, this ageless musician would still be easily pulling the
next generation to his gigs. Hooker remains a phenomenon, a mysterious figure of
black rhythm and blues, a charismatic king who reigns supreme in rock 'n' roll's
Hall of Fame. John W. Peters described his music as a synthesis of scorching
emotional ardour, unrelenting rhythmic intensity, and original poetry of a
highly personal character. Anyone hearing him for the first time may well be
startled at the unfiltered passion and power of his music.
And another surprise is in store for those who compare Hooker's late recordings
with those made in the Sixties. His unmistakable, raw voice has fully matured,
but his incantatory style of singing appears markedly finer and more flexible.
And then there is the perfect gem of a rhythm group whose sinewy sounds fill the
grooves with merciless gravitational force. It's enough to make your spine
