Originally released on the jazz-oriented Impulse label, Impulse was known more for Coltrane, than Hooker.
But everything clicks here, as John Lee is backed by seasoned jazz session men, and they lay down groove after groove, for classic Hooker incantations.
The slow blues are as primitive and personal as they can be, and the boogies rock solid!
This, and the VeeJay recordings, are must-haves for any collection.
John Lee Hookers voice, will always be...the very essence of the blues.
So, grab this recording now, at this great price!
