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 Country Blues Classic 11 Nov 2004
By DirkL - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is fantastic. Not many reviews here so I can only assume this recording may have been forgotten. I've not been a massive John Lee Hooker fan, or even a massive blues fan but due to my appreciation of what I call "rural" music, I've been listening to guys like Blind Willie Johnson, Fred McDowell and [Missippi] John Hurt, as well as the wonderful Pops [Roebuck] Staples of that great family ensemble, the Staple Singers. That's my Story fits right in there, sweetly among them. This is all-acoustic and a natural progression from his previous Country Blues solo recording. Here, he plays and sings along with a nice rythmic double base and drum arrangement, handled by a couple of jazz musicians (also ex-blues players), so no beefy rock manouvers here. This is spare and soulful, and probably one of John Lee's most personal recordings. It's not in the least bit heavy-handed, but lets the soul of the man speak, producing a most compelling listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of John Lee Hooker's Master Works! 28 May 2013
By Peter Gueckel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I don't know much about blues music, but it would not be incorrect for me to state that this acoustic album is one of John Lee Hooker's master works. He accompanies himself on the guitar, with the addition of bass and drums on a few of the tracks. It was recorded in 1960 and includes the classic, I Need Some Money. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Lee Hooker's slow country Blues 17 Nov 2011
By J. Bynum - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
That's My Story/ John Lee Hooker sings the blues: John Lee wrote all the songs he performs here and "I need some money" is the oft remade classic. Every cut here is slow, steady and brilliant. This is another John Lee Hooker classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... a real master of that blues scale 9 July 2008
By Don Alegre - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
What to tell you about this legendary man Hooker what has not been told.
... a genius, who was incredibly chary with the blue note, always placed it at the right moment, similarly to a recitative however slightly modified.
... since 1948 the good father for many rock bands and movements with in the R'n'B scene
... the or one of the most successful blues musicians so far or for ever

This DVD, well done as such, certainly can never really cover JLHs tremendous opus nor does it allow you to gain even an insight. But it turned out to be an exciting flash of or a wonderful first step carrying you along into the fascinating world of this straight and rough but lovable, amiable and most sensitive Hooker, a man full of rhythm all his life long.

... a wonderful disc for all fans and those who yet missed
