Arguably the best live CD of John Lee Hooker
on 22 July 2008
I own a lot of John Lee Hooker's CD's. Having listened to his live performance on Live at Cafe au GoGo in the late 80's, i was looking for that disc, but found that it's also available as a bundle with some tracks taken from Soledad Prison. So this is more a "2 for 1" deal. Some prefer John Lee Hooker with band, others prefer to listen him solo. I like his songs best with a band, just like on this CD.
The audio captured on this CD will make you be there with the crowd. You can hear how small the venue is, which gives it that extra live vibe. If you like the blues, you must own a CD of John Lee Hooker. I personally think that this CD, together with his CD called "The Cream" is a must have.
You will not be disappointed.
