This album grows on you. Recorded in 1953 it is raw blues and as a fan of Van Morrison I can see where he picked up a lot of JLH phrases which have appeared over the years on his albums. It takes a few listens but if you are a lover of the blues you will enjoy this. Mean, spirited old fashion blues from one of the scene setters of this music.

One of the best Hooker albums gets the 180 treatment! 6 Oct 2013
By Beatle Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl
This is about as rural country blues as you can get....1950's John Lee Hooker with his only album for Atlantic is one of the purest artifacts of this genre. Basic guitar and vocal on most of the tracks, with some bass and foot stompin' is what its all about....Savoy Brown cut Don't Turn Me From Your Door and it really resonates on this historic album by the master of the blues. More gems like Real Gone and Guitar Lovin Man made this a 5 star album ....great early Lp cover....great photo and nice original liner notes..the music is pure blues as you can get.

Nothing like the Hook 30 Aug 2014
By Lashman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
This is an absolutely stunning example of Hooker at the height of his considerable powers. A must for the fans of his music. This is a blues primer that reveals nuance, creativity and passion fused with Hooker's singular gift for telling life stories. Juxtaposing this against later recordings only makes this recording more special. A bookend selection that quantifies the Hook at a critical point in his musical development. Go get it!
John Lee At His Best 27 Oct 2014
By reading man - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl
The side on this album were originally cut in Florida for the Score label. Eddie Kirkland backs John Lee on second guitar.

The amps sounds as if they turned up on max volume. This adds to the fun, because John Lee is the only downhome blues singer who benefited most when he started playing electric, something you wouldn't necessarily say about, for example, Lightning Hopkins.

In fact, if you buy the acoustic album that John Lee once recorded (title and label escape me at the moment), you'll note that a certain monotony sets in before you reach the last cut--and it isn't a lengthy album.

But add electricity and John Lee comes to vivid life no matter what he plays.

The cuts to cherish here are REAL, REAL GONE and GUITAR LOVIN' MAN, but the whole thing is 5 stars (well, maybe WOBBLIN' BABY is below the standard, but listen to the acoustic version of the same tune on the other album mentioned and you'll understand the power of amplification on John Lee's style).

Eddie Kirkland was the ideal accompanist. I admit to a perverse liking for the guitar/piano sides John Lee recorded with "Boodle It" Watkins, but nobody would say they were in synch, whereas Kirkland knows how to fill in and keep up with John.

Two of the best sides John Lee ever recorded--BAD BOY and GOTTA BOOGIE--feature Kirkland and were released on Modern (both available on an Ace CD).

One of the essential John Lee Hooker albums, for sure.

Classic Hooker! 20 Nov 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
This album exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is that the record was opened when it came. It was supposed to be "new", but since it was previously opened I am not sure.
