This version of BOOGIE CHILLUN, originally a live album recorded in 1962, also includes the disc LIVE AT SUGAR HILL, also recorded live in that same year. These two solo concerts are from the beginning of Hooker's "rediscovery" period. The early-'60s folk boom brought blues artists of Hooker's generation back into vogue and gave them a new audience. For Hooker it was more than a chance to cash in on his reputation. He took the opportunity to pare his music down to its essential elements for a harder, more focused sound than that of his '50s band recordings.
Hooker's voice is deeper and richer, full of hard-earned wisdom, and his trenchant guitar accompaniment is all that's required for the delivery of these hard-hitting tunes. The bleakness of "T.B. Is Killing Me" and "This World" are offset by the randiness of "I Like to See You Walk" and the world of endless possibility presented in "I Got the Key to the Highway." The ability to balance the good and the bad in this manner is the earmark of a blues genius, a title Hooker undoubtedly deserves.
