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 John Lee at the top 20 Dec 2006
By S J Buck TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This great 1991 recording captures JLH with a galaxy stars in the Winter of his career. You might think this would be a recipe for an awful album -you'd be wrong.

From the first notes you know this is going to great. Johnnie Johnson's Piano (Chuck Berry's long time Piano Player) introduces us to "I Want To Hug You" and then that voice comes in. This is no messin' straightahead boogie. The title track follows with the Robery Cray band supporting JLH. This is my favourite track. Great guitar playing from Robert Cray with JLH refusing to be quiet in the background!

There are no duff tracks on this album, and if you like the blues there will be something for you. Oh this bliss....

4.0 out of 5 stars Shivering, quivering, the passion of the Blues 7 Oct 2004
By Gareth Smyth VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Never really a duff moment on this one as John Lee gets back to what the blues was all about. Highlights for me is 'I Cover the Waterfront' played with Van Morrison, and the amazing 'Highway 13' ('It was raining so hard that morning you could hardly see the road ....') where, jeez, you can feel the Delta humidity slinking down the window.
The quivering shivering voice of the man reaching back to the cotton fields exudes throughout the passion, unrest, love and troubles that went into the Blues. Maybe he could do it in his sleep but unlike so many of the imitators he really could do it.
Yes, we miss you, John Lee.

By The Guardian TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
John Lee Hooker's deep, baritone growl and infectious boogie rhythms personify the sound of original delta blues like no-one else, and have almost certainly influenced more blues and rock musicians worldwide than anyone else in the 20th century. `Mr. Lucky' released in 1991 was John Lee's second Pointblank label collaboration album (following on from 1989's `The Healer'), where a stellar cast of younger musicians stand in line for the honor of recording with the great master: Albert Collins, Van Morrison, Ry Cooder, John Hammond, Carlos Santana, Johnnie Johnson, Robert Cray, Johnny Winter and Keith Richards all feature and the result is a fitting tribute to one of the 20th century's most iconic and enduring natural talents.

The result is better than you might expect. Stand-out tracks would be boogie-woogie numbers `Father was a jockey', `I want to hug you', `Stripped me naked' and the slow 6-minute `I cover the waterfront' with Van Morrison's soulful tenor proving the perfect counterpoint to John Lee's rich, low-register soul-croon in a sublime duet which lingers in memory.

The album contains some of John Lee's last great recordings, and is worthy of any serious collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is there such a thing as a duff JLH CD? 22 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
Probably not.
This is plain and simple blues thats easy to enjoy whoever you are. You can play this as background music when your great aunt Maud visits, and it wont upset her too much. You can play it loud when your metalhead friends come around, they wont be too offended. You can work with it in the background, or concentrate on it with a bottle of JD and get plastered. It's deep enough for you to listen to it, lie in the middle of the lawn, look at the stars and say 'S'bloody right that is.... swat I fink too'.
There are many guest appearances on this CD from greats such as Ry Cooder, Van Morrison, Santana and Keith Richards. If it's good enough for them, then it's good enough for me.
Pure class. Thanks John.
