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.
