Format: Audio CD
Let me state first off- I'm no blues expert, but having read a few magazine articles and music compendiums down my local library on our man Hooker I thought I'd try this compilation. Originally released in 1954 on the Modern Label this selection compiled songs Hooker had recorded between 1948 and 1954. Ace Records (always a label to be trusted for quality) re-released it in 1994 with six bonus selections of the same period.

If you are a blues fan, or even just a fan of music that speaks to the listner you cannot help but be "hooked!" This is one man and his guitar for ten of the eightteen tracks, accompanied only by beer bottle tops stuck to the end of his shoe tapping the floorboards- just fantastic! Even when he is accompanied by other musicians this is still Hooker's show and the force and conviction in his delivery is startling, hypnotic and at points, scary!

Hooker was a one-off his story cannot be repeated as he is of a generation of blues musicians who brought their craft to the wider world and influenced the course of popular music. Sounds heavy I know, but this music is great regardless of the baggage of history- sex, love, murder and drinking never sounded so good!
