Overview

There are countless compilations of John Lee Hooker material on the market, issued by a variety of labels under assorted different titles, and this one isn't much different, but then you really can't go wrong with this guy -- he always delivered what he was supposed to deliver with no frills and no fuss, generating a kind of endless boogie that, no matter what embellishments producers added in, was always poised between old country blues and its next-generation urban blues counterpart. None of Hooker's signature songs are here, but one still gets a solid sense of Hooker from cuts like "Gotta Boogie," "Cool Little Car," and "Taxi Driver," and truthfully, the only bad Hooker is no Hooker at all.
