John Lee HookerOn The Waterfront ... LP
Wand, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
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, 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)... $9.99
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 HookerThat's Where It's At! ... LP
Stax, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.99
A fantastic pairing of soulful talents – the legendary John Lee Hooker on the mighty Stax Records – in a set that's a real standout in the career of both! The vibe here is different than the usual sound of Stax – not a Memphis-ized John Lee Hooker, but instead the kind of stripped-down session that the singer had done for other labels in his early years – given a very faithful presentation here by producer Henry Stone (who himself might well be the third important force at work on the set!) Tracks are mostly short – apart from one eight minute jam – and Hooker's got that raw, raspy bite that still makes him one of the all-time greats. Titles include "Teachin' The Blues", "Goin To Louisiana","I Need You", "My Love Comes Down For You", "Please Don't Go", "I Just Don't Know", "Slow & Easy", "Two White Horses", "Feel So Bad", and "Grinder Man".

Chess, 1961. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
About as pure as you can get for John Lee Hooker – a classic set of cuts for Chess, recorded with a feel that's almost folksy at times! The guitar has a raw edge that goes way back to the delta – and the overall approach is much more gritty than even some of Hooker's labelmates at the time – a really classic vibe that's supported in the liner notes by Studs Terkel! Titles include "The Journey", "Hey Baby", "Mad Man Blues", "Worried Life Blues", "Apologize", "Lonely Boy Boogie", and "Just Me & My Telephone". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John Lee HookerLive At Soledad Prison ... LP
ABC, 1972. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the roughest, rawest John Lee Hooker albums from the ABC years – a live recording done at Soledad Prison in California! The set features vocals both by Hooker and his son – and instrumentation includes Luther Tucker and Charlie Grimes playing additional guitar next to John, plus Fender bass from Lex Silver, and drums from Ken Swank. The crowd is clearly into the recording quite a bit – going nicely wild at all the right points – and titles include "Superlover", "I'm Your Crosscut Saw", "What's The Matter Baby", "Boogie Everywhere I Go", and "Bang Bang Bang Bang". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John Lee HookerJohn Lee Hooker Alone – Vol 1 (with download) ... LP
Tomato/Fat Possum, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A wonderful album that's easily one of John Lee Hooker's finest moments of the 70s – a set recorded live before a small audience at Hunter College in New York, but done with a feel that makes the whole thing even more timeless than most of Hooker's other albums of the decade! The mix has the vocals right up front – way more than even the guitar, at a level that really captures all the personal inflections and amazing tones in the lyrics – as well as John Lee's hip spoken intros as he works his way through the songs. Make no mistake, this isn't one of those hokey "college blues" albums that were coming out at the time – but instead a timeless portrait of one of the true originators, working here at his best. Titles on this first volume include "I Miss You So", "Jesse James", "Dark Room", "Boogie Chillum", "Boom Boom", and "One Scotch One Bourbon One Beer". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes bonus download.)

✨✧ John Lee HookerDocumenting The Sensation Recordings 1948 to 1952 (3CD set) ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
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 HookerFree Beer & Chicken ... LP
ABC, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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 love the record! The guitar on the set is wonderfully scratchy – ripping up and down over heavy drums, with some nice horn touches to flesh the sound up – and wicked vocals from Hook that give the whole set a nice and nasty feel! The best cuts include "Make It Funky", "713 Blues", "714 Blues", and "Bluebird" – and the record's got some very nice breaks! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John Lee HookerJealous ... LP
PA USA, 1986. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A bit of a comeback set for John Lee Hooker – recorded in the mid 80s, but with a sound that's still pretty traditional overall! Most tracks are original compositions, performed with small combo instrumentation that features Hooker on guitar, alongside organ, rhythm guitar, bass, and drums. The vocals are pretty great – as raw and raspy as ever – and although the production is slightly modern, it's pretty darn good for 1986 – considering that most traditional blues sets of the time were often ruined by too-bright production. Titles include "Jealous", "Ninety Days", "Early One Morning", "When My First Wife Left Me", "Worried Life Blues", and "We'll Meet Again". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has a slight warp but played fine for us. Cover has a wrinkled corner, a hype sticker, a cut corner, and light wear.)

✨✧ Eddie Guitar BurnsI Love To Jump The Boogie ... CD
Jasmine, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily 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".

✨✧ VariousNick Cave Heard Them Here First ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Nick Cave is a man of many influences – sounds from so many different styles of music, which he's used to forge into his own uniquely personal style over the years! And Cave's never been secret about the music that moves him, either – and always gives credit where credit's due – both by referencing important influences in his interviews, and by covering their work on his records. That latter side of Nick's recordings is collected here – the original versions of songs that Cave later recorded himself – a really rich tapestry of rock, soul, jazz, country, and blues from the 20s onwards – but with an especially strong focus on the postwar years. There's a surprising sense of unity to the collection – despite the difference in years and artists – and titles include "Long Time Man" by Tim Rose, "Hey Joe" by The Leaves, "Tower Of Song" by Leonard Cohen, "Bedazzled" by Peter Cook & Dudley Moore, "Long Black Veil" by Lefty Frizzell, "There's No Night Out In The Jail" by Chad Morgan, "Burnin Hell" by John Lee Hooker, "Knoxville Girl" by The Louvin Brothers, "The Big Hurt" by Toni Fisher, "Moritat" by Harald Paulson, and "Hammer Song" by The Sensational Alex Harvey Band.
