The Very Best Of
Artist: John Lee Hooker
Cat No: CATLP126
John Lee Hooker represents the Mississippi blues in its purest form, and that is a mighty powerful form of
communication. ‘All my songs tell stories people can relate to,’ he claimed. ‘And the way I play it, they can feel it.’ Hooker’s long and eventful life finally ended on 21 June 2001 at his home in Los Altos, California. He remains today not only a blues icon but a music legend whose name will live on through songs like those featured here – a collection
that, amazingly, can only scratch the surface of his total recorded legacy.
