    There are literally dozens of John Lee Hooker compilations out there. Many of them come from far more important eras than the stuff here. That said, this is one recording for Hooker collectors. The material comes form the 1960s and '70s, all of it with a band. But the real thing to recommend this set over others -- for hardcore fans -- is the 18-plus-minute version of the title cut, which has never been released before now. Most of these tracks appeared n the late '90s, but most of them have only been issued in various forms on other CDs and never before been assembled on one disc. The sound is excellent and the presentation sublime. Just get it. ~ Thom Jurek

  • Critic Reviews
    Living Blues (p.71) - "Someone is playing superb piano behind him - billowing cascades, wide chords, sparkling arpeggios that bring a bit of light to Hooker's broodings."
