Born near Clarksdale, Mississippi on August 22, 1917 to a sharecropping family, John Lee Hooker's earliest musical influence came from his stepfather, Will Moore. By the early 1940's Hooker had moved north to Detroit by way of Memphis and Cincinnati. Hooker found work as a janitor in the auto factories, and at night, like many other transplants from the rural Delta, he entertained friends and neighbors by playing at "house parties". He was "discovered" by record storeowner Elmer Barbee who took him to Bernard Besman, who was a producer, record distributor and owner of Sensation Records, Besman leased some of his early Hooker recordings to Modern Records. Among Hooker's first recordings in 1948, "Boogie Chillen" became a number one jukebox hit for Modern and his first million seller. This was soon followed by an even bigger hit with "I'm In The Mood" and other classic recordings including "Crawling Kingsnake" and "Hobo Blues." Another surge in his career took place with the release of more than 100 songs on Vee Jay Records during the 1950's and 1960's.

John Lee Hooker (August 22, 1917 – June 21, 2001) was an African-American blues singer-songwriter and guitarist, born in Coahoma County near Clarksdale, Mississippi. Hooker began his life as the son of a sharecropper, William Hooker, and rose to prominence performing his own unique style of what was originally closest to Delta blues. He developed a 'talking blues' style that was his trademark. Though similar to the early Delta blues, his music was metrically free. John Lee Hooker could be said to embody his own unique genre of the blues, often incorporating the boogie-woogie piano style and a driving rhythm into his masterful and idiosyncratic blues guitar and singing. His best known songs include "Boogie Chillen" (1948) and "Boom Boom" (1962).

blues | 10cd | EAC Rip | Ape + Cue + Log | covers
Membran Music 222916-321 | mono | rec: 1948-69 | 1500Mb

This box set reissue of the "John Lee Hooker – Portrait 10 cd (Past Perfect 2001)". Overall, the sound is very good with a few songs on the first couple of discs sounding really rough. The first 8 discs are early solo Hooker with the ocassional backing guitar or piano. Disc 9 sounds like Veejay recordings and the 10th is a live concert. Hooker mentions Lowell Fulsom and SP Leary but there is no live audience response. Good stuff though.The only drawback is that there are no liner notes at all. But if you want to fill out your collection with some great early stuff, this will be a great addition to your collection. Boogie on, Johnny Lee!
