4.0 out of 5 stars blue man sings the whites with authority 2 July 2014
Format:Audio CD
Sunderland has been a desert for live music for years . It was not always so and in the late 60s Country Joe and the Fish , Pink Floyd , Free and many others appeared due to an enterprising local amateur promoter who simply loved the music . Then came the Boomtown Rats episode at the council owned Empire when several seats were damaged . Sunderland Labour Party declared war and even banned the Radio One Roadshow for gods sake . Finding live music then became as difficult as sifting the truth from a political speech . The Alexandra is a small pub in Grangetown and the common consensus is that the best gig of recent years was when John Hammond somehow pitched up there . I bought this CD on the strength of what others told me about that night . I slid the tray into the player with some degree of scepticism . After all I lived in a country where blue men had sung the whites for fifty years or so and they all sounded exactly like what they were - impersonators . From the opening bars of of the title track I knew that I was in different territory . This is relaxed and it swings like the clappers . On four tracks he is alone with his guitar and harmonica . On another he swops lines with John Lee Hooker . On the tracks with backing you will find Tim Drummond and Spooner Oldham . On the title track producer JJ Cale plugs in and joins in . One of the outstanding blues albums of the last twenty years . Why do Paul Butterfield and John Hammond convince when our lot don't ? Perhaps it is earlier exposure to the material or closer proximity to the source . I don't know but anyone with ears can hear the difference . I exclude Van Morrison from this polemic but then Van just sounds like Van and has never tried to sound like a black man . Paradoxically this makes him our greatest blues singer by a mile .

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic mix of acoustic and electric artistry. 28 Oct 1999
By Brett Zuver (thezuvers@yahoo.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Got Love If You Want It is a spectacular album to introduce people to the vetran troubador of country blues-John Hammond. It has a great mix of solo acoustic songs paired with songs where John is backed by Little Charlie and the Nightcats as well as a great duet with John Lee Hooker. The two highlights for me are "No One Can Forgive Me But My Baby", written especially for John by Tom Waits, and John's cover of the Son House (or Robert Johnson) classic, "Preachin' Blues". The former is a perfect example of Hammond's pounding, rhythmic, solo acoustic playing paired with his great harp work; while the latter is an exercise in raw emotion and National Steel guitar slide licks and powerful singing (Hammond often closes his shows with this number-a showstopper).
This is a perfect blend of the Chicago sound blended with pre-war Delta sounds-a hands down winner!

5.0 out of 5 stars guaranteed to melt a woman's heart 4 Mar 2001
By booknblueslady - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
John Hammond continues to perform blues with a passion for the music. He has a voice, guaranteed to melt a woman's heart which is suited to the songs he chooses. He has a reputation as a skilled performer among fans and musicians alike.
Standout songs on this cd are Driftin' Blues, Nadine and No one Can Forgive Me but My Baby. Hammond gets an assist from John Lee Hooker on Driftin Blues. Their rendition is worth the price of the cd alone. Also helping Hammond out on this cd are Little Charlie and The Nightcats musicians Rick Estrin on Harmonica and Charlie Baty on guitar. They are slick veteran musicians who add to this sleek production.
This is a worthy record for a blues collection, especially those fond of acoustic blues. Those wanting to "keep the blues alive " should support a performer who has over the years done so much to foster an appreciation of the blues throughout the country.
5.0 out of 5 stars Solid blues 7 Aug 2008
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album has some standout tracks, including Hammond's version of "You Don't Love Me," which most of us probably know better through the Allman Brother's version on the Fillmore East album, and "No One Can Forgive Me But My Baby," which I understand Tom Waits wrote for Hammond. Sure sounds like it. Bummer this is out of print, because this is solid, classic stuff.
5.0 out of 5 stars His best 2 July 2001
By Steve Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my favorite blues CDs and one of Hammonds best efforts. I certainly agree with the editorial reviews. I would highly recommend this!
