Fantastic stuff from John Lee Hooker, and a record that's unlike any other he's ever done!

✨✧ 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!

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!
