Artist: John Lee Hooker
Format: LP
Bar-code: 5060397601971
Cat No: CATLP197


There is little doubt that John Lee Hooker was one of the most
commercially successful blues artists that ever lived. He rose
above his contemporaries with worldwide hit records and a
particularly long series of albums, and a career that lasted for over
sixty years. He was always prolific and attracted other artists to
collaborate with him without ever losing his own highly distinctive
style. One of the real and lasting strengths of That’s My Story as
an album is in its immediacy. Orrin Keepnews knew just how to
use studio microphone placement to make the listener feel right in
the middle of the session. Nothing extraneous is used to move
John Lee away from you, making it evident that the producer’s
original intention with the album has certainly been fulfilled. No
wonder that this laid-back work, so quickly recorded, has stood
the test of time as one of John Lee Hooker’s most revered
