John Lee HookerDocumenting The Sensation Recordings 1948 to 1952 (3CD set) ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy 3CD ... $32.99 34.99
A really amazing package – not just for fans of John Lee Hooker, but for anyone who loves postwar blues in general! The work here is all from the tiny Sensation Records label in Detroit – the label to first record John Lee Hooker in the late 40s, and who continued to do sessions with Hooker even after they were getting some of their recordings placed on bigger labels for wider distribution. The massive 3CD set is the first to ever fully plumb the depths of these years – and brings together all the recordings made by Sensation, including some unusual alternates, related dates, and more – all with fantastic sound that really gets at the raspy brilliance of Hooker, and the way he effortlessly mixed up urban and rural modes on the Detroit scene. 71 tracks in all – and titles include "Hoogie Boogie", "Hastings Street Boogie (ext take)", "Hobo Blues (alt take)", "Henry's Swing Club", "Sailing Blues", "Build Myself A Cave (take 3)", "Alberta (alt take)", "Wednesday Evening", "John L's House Rent Boogie (alt take)", "Moon Is Rising (alt take)", "Story Of A Married Woman (alt take)", "Strike Blues (ext)", "I'm In The Mood (humming overdub)", "It Hurts Me So (alt take)", "That's All Right Boogie (underdub)", and lots more!

John Lee HookerHouse Of The Blues ... LP
Chess, Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $29.99
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 the end of that decade – and they represent the formative roots of the Chess Records sound – a key bridge between Chicago blues and work from earlier scenes. Titles include "Ramblin By Myself", "Ground Hog Blues", "Women & Money", "High Priced Woman", "Sugar Mama", "Walkin The Boogie", "Love Blues", and "Union Station Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s Original Chess Masters pressing – in great shape!)

✨✧ John Lee HookerNever Get Out Of These Blues Alive ... LP
ABC, 1972. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wicked little album that has John Lee Hooker recording in San Francisco with a bunch of the other funky talents gracing the ABC/Impulse label at the time! Like other Bay Area work of the time, there's a nicely messed-up feel to the whole session – and plenty of funky moments bubble up from the bottom, thanks to a lineup that features Clifford Coulter on keyboards, Mel Brown on guitar, and Michael White on violin! More standard bluesmen on the date include Charlie Musselwhite on harmonica, Robert Hooker on electric piano, and Elvin Biship on slide guitar – and titles include "Hit The Road", "Boogie With The Hook", "Letter To My Baby", and "TB Sheets". Van Morrison also duets with Hooker on the title track – "Never Get Out Of These Blues Alive". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original black label pressing. Includes the ABC/Dunhill inner sleeve. Cover has light ringwear in back, in fantastic shape otherwise!)

✨✧ John Lee HookerUrban Blues ... LP
Bluesway, 1967. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic late 60s set from John Lee Hooker – one that has the legend working in a mode that echoes some of the funkier soul styles of the time, but with a vibe that's still very much in the best spirit of his classic work! The groove is slightly amped up by the electric bass of Eddie Taylor and tight drums of Al Duncan, but the session just features a quartet – with the mighty Phil Upchurch on second guitar next to John's lead – and Hooker delivering some fantastic vocals throughout! Titles include "Hot Spring Water (parts 1 & 2)", "Backbiters & Syndicaters", "Mr Lucky", "Cry Before I Go", "I'm Standing In Line", "The Motor City Is Burning", "Want Ad Blues", and "I Can't Stand To Leave You".

✨✧ John Lee Hooker & Coast To Coast Blues BandAnywhere Anyplace Anytime ... LP
United Artists, Late 40s/Early 50s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early recordings by John Lee Hooker and his Coast To Coast Blues Band – recorded in Detroit in the late 40s through the early 50s. The Coast To Coast Blues Band may be a little misleading in the title, as the recordings find Hooker with only the sparest accompaniment on bass, drums, and guitar if any accompaniment at all – but it's the good kind of misleading, because you don't want anything getting in the way of the foot stomping, soulful blues vibe of John Lee Hooker on these early cuts! Anytime-Anytime-Anywhere is filled with that spare, intimate John Lee Hooker blues sound that came to represent so much of the the inner city gin joints of the era – on titles that include "Come Back Baby", "Forgive Me", "Street Is Filled With Women", "Moon Is Rising", "Turnin' Gray Blues", "Lord Taketh My Baby Away", "Throw This Old Dog A Bone", and "Welfare Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a mostly peeled 'records are a sound purchase' sticker, over a crimped promo stamp, light wear.)

✨✧ Canned Heat & John Lee HookerHooker 'N Heat ... CD
Liberty/BGO (UK), 1970. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
If you ever doubted the blues chops of Canned Heat, take a listen to this album – as the group are joined by the great John Lee Hooker, who they let stand strongly in the spotlight and almost make the album his own! Previous sets by Canned Heat were already pretty darn great – a huge cut above blues-inspired rock groups of the late 60s years – but with Hooker in the lineup here, the sound gets even more raw and sensitive – so much so that a number of these cuts almost feel like some of the early Detroit 78rpm recordings the older blues musician recorded at the start of his career – hardly the watered-down blues rock you might expect. Titles include "Burning Hell", "Send Me Your Pillow", "Messin With The Hook", "Boogie Chillen No 2", "Peavine", "Just You & Me", "Whiskey & Wimmen", and "I Got My Eyes On You". CD

✨✧ John Lee HookerOn The Waterfront ... LP
Wand, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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, soulful elements bubbling underneath John's lead vocals and guitar on the mellow tracks – or at other times with a fuller sense of arrangements, a bit like you might find on 60s work on the Duke/Peacock label blues sessions. Hooker's in fine form throughout – and seems to open up nicely in the setting – and a few tracks are a bit more stripped-down, with a slightly rootsy feel. Titles include "Don't Want Nobody Else", "Crazy Mixed Up World", "Little Dreamer", "Seven Days", "Don't Be Messing With My Bread", "Storming On The Deep Blue Sea", and "Lost Everything".

Muse, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Great gritty sides from the mighty John Lee Hooker – material with a slightly obscure origin, but recorded in the late 50s, right in a stretch when he was cutting some of his classics! Hooker's guitar and vocals are center stage – both growling with a hell of a lot of soulful power – and the backing features just a bit of rhythm guitar, bass, and drums. Titles include "I Bought You A Brand New Home", "Teasin Me", "My Cryin Days Are Over", "Sad & Lonesome", "How Long", and "Mean Mistreatin". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John Lee HookerGet Back Home In The USA (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Black & Blue/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Damn fantastic work from the mighty John Lee Hooker – tracks recorded overseas in 1969, but with a raw vibe that takes us back to the time when Hooker was just beginning to set the Hastings Street scene on fire! The record features just John and his guitar – a mode that always seems to bring out the best in the bluesman – served up in that legendary John Lee Hooker quality that mixes rhythm, improvisation, and mindblowing vocals together at a level that will never have you missing the other musicians at all! The recording quality is superb – wonderfully crisp – and titles include "Cold Chills", "Get Back Home In The USA", "Big Boss Lady", "Little Rain", "I Had A Dream Last Night", "Back To Your Mother", and "When My First Wife Left Me". CD features 7 more bonus tracks added to the album – including "Sittin Here Thinkin", "I'm Going Upstairs", "Crazy Bout You", and "I'm So Worried Baby". CD

Eddie KirklandI'll Move You Baby – Bluesin In Detroit 1950 to 1961 ... CD
Jasmine (UK), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $17.99 18.99
More than a decade's worth of work from the mighty Eddie Kirkland – a Detroit singer and guitarist who came up on the same scene as John Lee Hooker, but whose style was maybe even more urban and electric overall! Kirkland's sometimes eclipsed by his work with Hooker – partly because he didn't have a huge amount of singles issued at the time – but taken as a whole, this decade-plus amount of work really illuminates the strengths that Eddie brought to the scene – not just for his really raw guitar work, but also his soul-drenched way of putting over a lyric. The set features 20 tracks recorded by Kirkland, including a few as "Little Eddie Kirkland" – plus 8 more with Hooker – titles that include "Mercy Blues", "It's Time (For Lovin To Be Done)", "Train Done Gone", "I Must Have Done Somebody Wrong", "I Need You Baby", "So Pretty Baby", "I Tried", "Blood On Your Hands", and two takes each of "I Mistreated A Woman" and "No Shoes".

Memphis Slim & Canned HeatMemphis Heat (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
LMLR (France), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Canned Heat recorded famously with John Lee Hooker during their years on Liberty Records – but here, the blues group is in very different territory – as they work with lead vocals and piano from Memphis Slim, in a Memphis-based setting that also features added work from The Memphis Horns! The recording was originally only issued in France – part of the House Of The Blues series for Barclay Records – and it's got maybe a more blues-first, rock-second quality than some of Canned Heat's other material – with Slim on most of the vocals, except for one cut that has Joe Hill singing lead. Titles include "Down The Big Road", "Back To Mother Earth", "Mr Longfingers", "Trouble Everywhere I Go", "Five Long Years", and "Whizzle Wham". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eddie Guitar BurnsI Love To Jump The Boogie ... CD
Jasmine, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great overview of the early career of Eddie Burns – a Detroit guitarist who also plays harmonica on a fair bit of these sides – coming across with the gritty blend of urban and rural modes that made Burns a key contemporary of John Lee Hooker in the city! Hooker's actually on a few of these tracks, and you'll hear appearances from other talents who include John T Smith, Joe Hunter, Little Sonny, and even a few early Motown artists too – in a set of tracks that include singles for the Gotham, Palda, Kent, Deluxe, and Harvey labels – plus unissued titles too. In later years, Eddie was recorded more heavily on full albums – but this 27 track set is a great look at these early days – with titles that include "Hello Miss Jessie Lee", "Sittin Here Wonderin", "Grieving Blues", "Squeeze Me Baby", "Notoriety Woman", "Love Shock", "I Gotta Find My Baby", "Orange Driver", "The Thing To Do", and "Mean & Evil".
