John Lee Hooker – The Vee-Jay Singles Collection (2CD SET)

Artist: John Lee Hooker
Format: 2CD
Bar-code: 5060143495182
Cat No: NOT2CD518


With his simple, hypnotic boogie rhythms, John Lee Hooker is arguably the most influential of all post Wold War II bluesmen. The 40 tracks form only part of the musical legacy John Lee left to the world. But even if you only measure them by their influence – the Doors covered ‘Crawlin’ Kingsnake’, guitarist Wilko Johnson named his group the Solid Senders, the list goes on – they earn their place in any blues CD collection.
