HASH(0x97e80930) out of 5 stars "I'D RATHER SEE YOU DEAD BABY THAN WITH SOMEBODY ELSE." 6 Dec. 2013
By Stuart Jefferson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This set, across 138 tracks, collects some great sides by Hooker--both solo and with a small band. But it does duplicate tunes found on other box sets of Hooker's music. But there are some hard to find tracks here too, mixed in with better known songs. But off-hand I can't remember any other Hooker box sets (except for the 4 CD Proper Records box, and the 4 CD set from JSP) that includes so many tracks from across Hooker's career. The Proper set has tracks over Hooker's career, while the JSP set focuses on Hooker's early (1948-1951) recordings. This is a good example of the differing copyright laws in Europe versus the U.S., where many recordings are out of copyright after 50 years. Apparently that's soon to change, with Europe changing their laws to something closer to U.S. laws.

Fans will have many (or most) of these sides already if they own (at least) one of the box sets of Hooker's music. But if you're looking for a good cross section of his music from different periods, this would be a viable purchase. This set seems to be aimed at deep fans (like me) of Hooker's music or someone who just wants a broad overview of his music in one nice, neat box set. But know there's no booklet--just a list of the tracks for each CD--no credits of any kind. The double jewel cases all have the same graphic that's on the cover of the outer box, and a list of all the tracks on the back cover. So if you want to know any particulars you'll have to research it for yourself--which nowadays isn't too hard to do. The other side of that coin is that it's pretty cool not really knowing what track from what period--and will it be Hooker solo or with a band--is up next. So your interest level stays high. But a curious thing happened. I found myself liking this set more and more simply because of the mixture of styles and bands/solo tracks next to each other, especially the older, rougher sounding tracks.

The sound is a mixed bag. There's no master sources listed but most tracks have pretty good/good quality sound, but there's a number of fairly rare tracks that were (very obviously) taken from the only sources available--vinyl--with the "pops" and "scratchiness" intact. Audiophiles will not like a number of these tracks dubbed from poor vinyl sources. But the chance to hear relatively rare Hooker sides precludes any misgivings about the sound quality. Besides, for me the older vinyl sound gives these tracks a real atmosphere of age. You may feel differently.

Included are many well known tracks from various periods of Hooker's career. There doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason to the selection, but when you're talking about John Lee Hooker, the level of musical gems included stays pretty high across the 6 discs. Some fans may feel this is worth 5 "stars", others maybe 3 "stars". I rated it 4 "stars" because the music is just so great--this is the real deal blues. But because of the repetition of so many tracks found elsewhere I docked it 1 "star". But for some fans this will be a great (no frills) set of many of Hooker's best sides. You may feel differently--to each his own.
