Some "Best of" CDs really are not. This CD really is! This CD covers 22 of John Lee Hooker's greatest hits from 1951 to 1966, over 65 minutes of music. All of these songs were recoded in the '60s and '70s too, long before his gold and platinum album days. These are the same songs that would make Hooker famous 55 years later. Most of his better-known songs can be found on this disc. Throughout it all, Hooker's music remained unchanged. His rich and sonorous voice, full of ancient hurt, and his brooding and savage style remained hypnotic but unpredictable. To the strains of his own guitar, he sang of loneliness and confusion. Neither polished nor urbane, his music was raw, primal emotion. His one-chord boogie compositions and rhythmic guitar work were a distinctive sound that influenced rock 'n' rollers as well as rhythm and blues musicians. According to John shortly before his death, "I been doing the same things as in my younger days, when I was coming up, and now here I am, an old man, up there in the charts." During a career more than six decades long, the veteran blues singer from the Mississippi Delta estimated he recorded more than 100 albums. To have a "best of" CD with that much material to pick from is a hard task, but the producers have done well.
If you only own one John Lee Hooker CD (if that is possible) this is the one to own.
