SMOKIN!!!!
C. Theobald | Sheboygan, WI USA | 01/30/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of the sweetest sounding Johnny Lee live CD's I have ever heard. The sound quality is excellent, and Hooker's voice is so great it scares me. This is a must for anyone who likes down home smokin & drinkin blues to the bone. Damnnn!!"
CAVEAT EMPTOR: GET TWO CD VERSION!!!!!
Lonnie P. Fredette | PLATTSBURGH, NY, US | 05/18/2010

"IF you get this excellent 1977 concert at the Keystone in Palo Alto, MAKE SURE YOU GET THE TWO CD VERSION!!!!! IT has FOUR additional tracks: Little Girl, Louise, When My First Wife Left Me and Boogie On!!! This TWO cd version is the 2001 FUEL 2000/Varese Sarabande version, NOT the Charly or Tomato versions!!! 'Nuf said!"
One of the great live blues records
Johnny Boy | Hockessin, DE | 04/25/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While 'The Cream' may sound like a greatest-hits record, it's actually not. It's John Lee Hooker just jamming with his group during a concert in California in late 1977. You get some of his finest songs here.

Among the sides: A stunning live version of 'When My First Baby Left Me,' a killer version of 'Tupelo,' and a mighty fine version of 'Rock Steady.'

Hooker's band is also mighty fine as well. I don't know the exact personnel, but they just jam along with John Lee Hooker.

Overall, if you've never purchased a live album from John Lee Hooker, this is a mighty fine album to start with.

Highly recommended for any John Lee Hooker fan. A classic. ENJOY!!!"
