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

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

House Rent Boogie presents John Lee Hooker in his first heyday, in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Six tracks are previously unissued and others are making their first appearance on CD. The notes call it "a cross-section of hot Hooker at his prime with great solo performances and small combo recordings", and there's not a word there that even a pedant could question. The small combo may be no more than the guitars of Hooker and Eddie Kirkland, sometimes interlocking, sometimes floating apart, always excitingly unpredictable--listen to the cascading figures of "How Can You Do It" or "It's Stormin' and Rainin'". Piano and horns drift absentmindedly through "Taxi Driver" and "Hug and Squeeze", and Hooker slips into the role of an R&B shouter. Elsewhere we hear the strange, mesmerising music of Hooker on his own, such as in the Cold War themed "Build Myself a Cave" or his 1948 debut single "Sally Mae". Sometimes overdubs give us two Hooker guitars at once--and it's suggested that the overdubbed harmonica on "I'm in the Mood" is (uniquely) his too, though I think fellow Detroiter Eddie Burns a likelier bet. --Tony Russell

Product Description

(1948-55 'Modern') (70:46/24) Zusammenstellung seiner 'Modern'-Aufnahmen, Ergänzung zu 'The Legendary Modern Recordings' (CD CHD 315). Hooker auf dem Höhepunkt seiner Schaffenskraft. Diese CD enthält sechs unveröffentlichte Titel, u.a. 'Key To The Highway' ohne den nervigen, später hinzugefügten Gesang von Eddie Kirlkland in der Einleitung. Bei 'In The Mood' spielt Hooker vermutlich Harmonica. Superb / a cimpoliation of his greatest sides for the Modern label, complementing the earlier Ace re-issue CHD 315. Hooker in his prome. With six unissued sides, amongst them 'Key to the Highway' without Kirkland's later over-dubbed vocal intro. Also, you are supposed to hear Hooker playing harmonica on 'In The Mood'.
