cool, this is one club that even Groucho would join.
Just call me Blind Boy Bishop
Went to see Eric Clapton 82 while I was still in HS. Muddy Waters opened for him and I still think he is the coolest on earth and in Heaven.
A few years later whil in college I saw he was playing a small club in San Francisco with Willie Dixon. I went there, half expecting to be turned away since I didn't have a ticket.
I was wrong but was shocked to see the place empty. I was a few feet away ....and they both played like they were playing to a full house.
It's great to like someone's music and not be ashamed of them because they are aholes.
Give Slim Harpo a shot, great stuff not normally heard!
Picked this up the other day and am very impressed with the versatility of Mr. John Lee Hooker (God rest his soul). Most of the stuff I have by him prior to this purchase is acoustical Delta Blues which to the untrained ear means every song sounds the same. This album however has a wide range of styles and I've only listened to the first 5 songs!!!! A real treat here is that Johnny Johnson plays piano on several of the tracks. This guy has got to be one of the best blues pianist alive today. Check out Jimmy Rogers' Blue Bird album for even more of Johnny's fine work. Another thing that suprised me on this album is that Mr. Hooker's voice doesn't have that rough edge that I'm used to on some of the songs. Overall, I would have to say that this is my favorite John Lee Hooker album now and that this is a fine addition to my continually growing Blues Collection - thanx for recommending it.
