John Lee Hooker: Four Classic Albums (Sings Blues / The Country Blues Of John Lee Hooker / That’s My Story - John Lee Hooker Sings The Blues / House Of The Blues) (2CD)

Ref: AMSC1382

(UK Postage Free )


AVID Roots continues with its Four Classic Roots Albums series with a re-mastered 2CD second release from John Lee Hooker complete with original artwork, liner notes and personnel details
“Sings Blues”; “The Country Blues Of John Lee Hooker”; “That’s My Story - John Lee Hooker Sings The Blues” and “House Of The Blues “
Following the incredible success of our AVID Roots series which includes such classic blues names as Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Lightnin’ Hopkins, John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Reed, T. Bone Walker, Lonnie Johnson, Reverend Gary Davis and B.B King we thought it was time to add another collection by the legendarily prolific John Lee Hooker. For our second look at the work of John Lee Hooker we have gone back to the very early days for our first selection. Under the name Texas Slim we present a collection or early singles from 1949-50 John made for the King label and released in 1960 under the title “Sings Blues”. This is raw Hooker as you will not have heard him before but in our opinion all the better for it! (Please note due to timing constraints we have omitted the four tracks by Earl Hooker originally featured on this collection). Accompanying this early collection are three more classic Hooker sets, House Of The Blues is again early recordings from 1951-54 while “The Country Blues” and “That’s My Story - John Lee Hooker Sings The Blues” are from 1959 and 1960 respectively.
Check out:- Muddy Waters/Howlin’ Wolf (AMSC1162); Lightnin’ Hopkins (AMSC1225, 1254 & 1363); Jimmy Reed (AMSC1214; John Lee Hooker (AMSC1208); B.B. King (AMSC1203); Lonnie Johnson (AMSC1207); Rev. Gary Davis (AMSC1271); Rural Blues: The Essential Collection (AVC942); Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee (AMSC1361); T. Bone Walker (AMSC1359).
