Product Description:

John Lee Hooker's sprawling, six-decade-long discography is impossible to boil down to a single-disc best-of, though that hasn't stopped dozens of record companies from trying. Hip-O's 20-track THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION is as well-selected and comprehensive a set as one is likely to find, however, drawing as it does from Hooker's entire career and choosing the best of his recordings from his endless succession of label associations.
The disc kicks off with one of the Hook's anthems, "Boogie Chillen," a raw, solo electric stomp from his earliest days at Modern Records, and one of the finest blues performances ever put to tape. Hooker went on to adopt powerful electric bands for his tenures with Chess, Impulse, Vee Jay, and other labels, and that sound is well represented here (see the classic "Boom Boom" or "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer"). The artist's late-period collaborations with the likes of Carlos Santana and Bonnie Raitt are also included, rounding out this excellent if cursory overview of the blues icon.
