BLUES LEGEND contains tracks from John Lee Hooker's years at Chess Records.
Personnel: John Lee Hooker (vocals, guitar).
This disc kicks off with Hooker in uncharacteristically mellow mode. The interwoven electric and acoustic guitars on "Doin' The Shout" provide a gentle backing for Hooker's weathered vocals. Fans of the man's raw, gutbucket sensibilities needn't despair, however, because such tracks as "House Rent Boogie" and "(I Got) A Good 'Un" tear up the place with pulsing beats and primitive, soulful guitar leads.
The production distinguishes BLUES LEGEND from older, classic Hooker material. Production values are noticeably rich for a blues recording, sometimes bordering on the vaguely psychedelic, complete with reverb guitar and fat, echoing basslines. Favorites such as "House Rent Boogie" and "Boom Boom" round out the set, making BLUES LEGEND an outstanding sampler--with great sound and performances--of one of the all-time blues greats.
