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 One of the best Hooker best of's around. 27 July 2008
By A. Willmer VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Let's face it, there are hundreds of blues best ofs and all are usually dirt cheap. While that's all well and good it can be difficult to work out which one to go for if you don't know the artist. This is particualry problematic when buying a Hooker album as he recorded about fifty versions of each song - some good some bad. Therefore it can be difficult to know just how good the cd is.

Over the years I've managed to work my way through quite a number of John Lee Hooker compilations and I have to say, this is by far the best. Okay, it doesn't have 'One Bourbon, One Scotch and One Beer' (for some reason every best of either has that or 'Boom Boom' but neither together!) but it does have the best versions of 'Boom Boom', 'Boogie Chillen', 'Crawling Kingsnake' and 'This is Hip'. That in my book makes it worth the four quid alone. However, there are also a few lesser known gems here. 'Blues Before Sunrise' is a good example of this as is 'Nightmares'. Therefore if you only buy one JLH record then make it this one.

This is a great album, worth more than the price charged for it. But then, I have always loved Lee Hooker and his contemporary bluesmen.
The guitar and vocals are vintage John.

This recording is surely useful to get to know John Lee Hooker. For a casual listener the many songs are difficult to differentiate, there is so many of them and a lot of them follow the same, simple model.
