✨✧ John Lee HookerEndless Boogie ... LP
ABC, 1970. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $12.99
A hip mix of raunchy blues and rootsy rock – all stretched out over a double-length set that's easily one of John Lee Hooker's loosest albums ever! The album has Hooker playing in a number of settings with hip rock and funk players from the California scene – including Steve Miller, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

BGO/ABC (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98
Fantastic stuff from John Lee Hooker, and a record that's unlike any other he's ever done! The groove is very hard and funky, with tight drumbreaks and excellent basslines that you'd hardly expect to find on an album by a blues artist – jamming around with a tight groove that really makes us ... read more CD

Crown/Southern Routes, 1963. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
About as classic as you can get for the legendary John Lee Hooker – a set of recordings from his early postwar years that perfectly define the special touch and electric genius of his music! The sound here is often as spare as rural acoustic blues from years back – but Hooker's using ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John Lee HookerHouse Of The Blues (140 gram vinyl) ... LP
Chess, Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
A rootsy cover, and some rootsy blues to match – a fairly stripped down session from John Lee Hooker –- and one that mostly just features vocals and guitar, plus some occasional added guitar and piano! Most of the recordings here are from the early 50s, pulled together in a full LP at ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John Lee HookerI Feel Good ... LP
Paula, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Gritty work from John Lee Hooker – a set recorded at the end of the 60s in Paris, at a time when that city was playing host to some of the hippest blues work of the decade! The style here is very much like John Lee Hooker of a decade before – simple, stark, and unadorned – with a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John Lee HookerIf You Miss 'Im . . . I Got 'Im ... LP
Bluesway, 1969. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
We're not normally fans of this sort of crossover stoner 60s blues session – but this is a great one, with incredibly spare production, and a bubbling potful of doped-up guitar licks and simmering organ parts. There's a very rootsy feel – similar to an early afternoon set at Monterey ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John Lee HookerJohn Lee Hooker Sings Blues – 16 Selections – Every One A Pearl (180 gram pressing) ... LP
King/Sundazed, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
A monster from the great John Lee Hooker – an artist who isn't usually associated with King Records, but who issued this mighty collection of sides for the label at the start of the 60s! Most of the work dates from a few years before – gritty tracks that have Hooker at his best postwar ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John Lee HookerOn The Waterfront ... LP
Wand, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A really unique album from the great John Lee Hooker – done for the mostly-soul Wand Records label, and with a feel that's quite different than some of Hooker's other records! There's a distinctly jazzy undercurrent running through the record at times – sometimes with some moody, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jewel, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A really nice later set from legendary Texas blues titan Sam "Lightnin'" Hopkins – done up for the Jewel label with a bit of the spark that was missing from the hit & miss work he did earlier in the decade for Bluesville! Blue Lightnin' also has a down and dirty style in spots, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mainstream, 1950/1951. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Great vintage recordings from Lightning Hopkins – initially recorded by producer Bob Shad on his trips to the south in the early 50s, then later issued on Shad's label Mainstream in the 60s! The style here captures Hopkins at his best – very spare and lowdown, with gritty guitar ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige/OBC, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
One the best of the Lightnin Hopkins records for Prestige in the early 60s – unaccompanied here, just as a lot of his most ardent admirers prefer – and it really is deeply effective work! Truth be told, we love the records from the period in which he's got a spare bit of studio backing, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lightnin HopkinsGreat Electric Show & Dance ... LP
Jewel, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Classic blues from Lightnin Hopkins – a set that's far rootsier than you might expect from the "electric show" in the title! Hopkins plays mostly acoustic guitar here – and sings with very spare backing overall – just a bit of keyboards, bass, and drums, plus some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bluesville/4 Men With Beards, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 22.98
Maybe one of the greatest settings we've ever heard for Sonny Terry – as the record's a nicely stripped-down gem that presents Lightnin Hopkins at his best! Lightnin plays guitar with a rhythmic vibe and spins out these effortless lyrics throughout – that almost-conversational style ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lightnin HopkinsLightnin & The Blues – Lightnin Hopkins Sings A Collection Of American Folklore ... LP
Herald/Southern Routes, 1954. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 18.99
Lightnin Hopkins at his best – a set that rings out with all his bold electric tones on the guitar, yet which also has the moody, stripped-down feel of a blues recording from a few decades before! The electricity really does a lot to deepen the tone – both in the echo from Hopkins' ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
