Biography

Singer-guitarist John Lee Hooker (1917-2001) was one of the most successful blues artists of the second half of the 20th century, yet his hypnotic brand of blues was in many ways a throwback to earlier times, before rules of rhyme, meter, and chord structure became standardized. The Clarksdale, Mississippi-born musician burst on the national scene with his first record, "Boogie ... Read more in Amazon's John Lee Hooker Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 26 Mar 2005
By Hippie Smell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
John Lee Hooker is in my opinion the first true Detroit rock and roll artist that follows in a fine tradition of the Stooges, The MC5, and Motown. The music on this album is probably the heaviest type of blues of ever heard. A little more ferocius, and darker than most stuff I've heard. If you like your blues squeeky clean like something Eric Clapton would record these days then you'll probably feel like the reviewer below that only gave this album two stars. But if you're like me and can just appreciate an individual with a lot of soul then this album will shake the foundation.

5.0 out of 5 stars loved this 30 Oct 2012

I like to put this on and crank the volume up when it is just me at work, drift away to another era, and sink into John Lee Hooker's rich, expresive voice.

4.0 out of 5 stars hey, it ain't that bad...... 17 Oct 2001
By "kamo33" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I don't know why 'music fan' 's review below me takes such offense to this fine album.. it's funky , it's dirty, just the way I like my blues. I kinda dig the doubletracking done on his voice, it gives the recording very much kind of a creepy quality . you may dig it too. this is the first album from JL Hooker that I 've listened too, so my discoveries are just beginning. check it out

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Music. 19 Jan 2002

This album is awesome! Listen to the music not the recording quality! Probably half of the greatest music was recorded poorly. Buy this and feel the music. John Lee rules.

3.0 out of 5 stars Even a master can make a less than perfect album 16 Nov 2011
By J. Bynum - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
John Lee Hooker/House of the Blues: I am a big fan of John Lee Hooker but this is not one of his better efforts. The songs on this album were all recorded in the early 1950's and some of the sides lean a little too hard on reverb (and echo tricks) which will certainly irritate a few listeners. No, this is not his best album but it remains an interesting piece of his development.
