Product Description:

Personnel includes: John Lee Hooker (vocals, guitar).
Includes original liner notes by Joe Greene.
Originally released on Vee-Jay in 1965.
All tracks have been digitally remastered.
From the vaults of Vee Jay records come an avalanche of classic John Lee Hooker reissues, featuring original art work, running order, and a budget price from the Collectables label. With the amount of Hooker material available on the market, some of it of dubious quality, you can't go wrong with these reissues. Is He the World's Greatest Blues Singer? was released in 1965 and acts as a greatest-hits package from that time period, combining 12 tracks of both acoustic and electric classics like "Crawlin Kingsnake," "Boom Boom," and live versions of "Maudie," "the Mighty Fire," and "Talk That Talk Baby." Any of the Hooker Vee Jay reissues are recommended. ~ Al Campbell
