Album Notes

Liner Note Author: Jonny Whiteside.

When an artist has been as prolific for as long as blues legend John Lee Hooker, a lot of curious items pop up in the discography, including albums of unknown derivation and varying quality. THE GREAT JOHN LEE HOOKER shares something with these recordings in that it's a small label release with no recording information. That shouldn't scare you away, though.

This isn't some random live date recorded by a condenser mike tucked in someone's armpit. Rather, it's an effective best-of, featuring some of Hooker's most well-loved tunes in what seem to be their best-known versions (even if they're not, they're strong enough that it doesn't matter). If you're daunted by some of the lengthier, pricier Hooker compilations on the market, THE GREAT JOHN LEE HOOKER is a fine place to make your entry into the rich world of this man's music.
