The Best of Friends John Lee Hooker

2 commentaires - Post a comment

For all who want to discover the Emperor of the Blues or to have a mantra if they’re already stung worshippers like me. All classic tracks recorded by John Lee Hooker… and friends. Charles Brown, Eric Clapton, Ry Cooder, Los Lobos, and Bonnie Raitt are only some of the performers who appear here, and the tracks, selected from recordings made by the prolific guitarist since 1988, show that Hooker hasn’t lost his touch. Among the highlights, there’s a smokin’ duet with Raitt on “I’m in the Mood,” a rendition of “Boom Boom” with a guest appearance from Jimmie Vaughan, and a reprise of Hooker’s 1956 hit “Dimples” with Los Lobos backing up. Mention must also be made of the lone solo track on this CD, the acoustic “Tupelo,” which hearkens to Hooker’s Delta blues roots. There are also three previously unreleased tracks, which are three more reasons to get this compilation
