This has one exceptional track that makes it a worthwhile album. "I don't wanna go to Vietnam", Mr Hooker's heart felt protest meditation at conscription. With piano and harmonica counterpoint it is a reflective and considered piece of music. It is suprising it has not appeared on compilations and it is possible the man distanced himself from what is a raw political song of those times. But for me it still (in 2013) has resonance of a song about being forced into a fight for an unjust cause. The other tracks are more reflective of John Lee Hooker's blues approach at this time, quality and as always, well constructed.
