Description
John Lee Hooker is still probably the most striking blues figure of the 20th century. The power and originality in the voice of John Lee Hooker, combined with his distinctive guitar, earned him a huge reputation in the Forties and Fifties. Beginning in Detroit, he conquered the audience the first time he walked on stage with just a guitar, before he moved on to every stage beyond his native Michigan. Between 1948 and 1954 he would record Sally Mae, Boogie Chillun, Hobo Blues, Crawling King Snake or I’m In The Mood … with his music appearing on many different labels, among them King, Modern, Regent, Acorn and Chance. That period is the subject of the John Lee Hooker album in the “BDBlues” series (BDBL182). Hooker started his career with the VeeJay label in 1955, and those recordings sealed his reputation as an essential blues voice.
