Big John Lee fan and this and 'Bus Full of Blues" stand outs. If one were so unfortunate to limit to one , excellent choice. True Delta old style blues with each phrase honestly wrought, whether as the victim of fate, as lover or a playful observer always honest and clear.

Dirty and beautiful

"Blues music at its best, when it is raw and simple, sorrowful and mean. Hooker's "inept" or "bad" guitar playing is perfect here. It is ragged and unusual, and his little mistakes add to the broken feeling of the songs. He sounds like a broken-hearted witch doctor. It's amazing. Good grief, how boring and criminal would this album be if it was John Lee singing over somebody playing perfect, totally predictable blues guitar? It makes no sense, and anyone who longs for that doesn't get John Lee Hooker, or the blues for that matter. Why don't you ask Keith Richards? He got a huge amount of his rhythm guitar style from John Lee. Of course if you think John Lee is inept then you probably think Keith Richards is sloppy and that Mick Jagger can't sing, so nevermind. It's people who like clean, overproduced, safe, boring blues music who have nearly killed the blues as an artform, and made it something for middle-aged suburbanites to go see on their Honda Goldwings on Friday nights at some restaurant near a mall. Get this album and turn it up and and experience some real blues, raw and nasty and completely profound."
Good old blues, great stuff!!

"This is a great "mood" blues cd. That guy below talking about how bad the guitar playing is doesn't get it. It's not how hard something is to play, it's what the songs do for you. I can't stand these technical snobs always talking about how hard and fast they can play....they only play with there brains, this comes from the heart."
