50 ORIGINAL ALL-TIME CLASSICS

The legendary John Lee Hooker developed a “talking blues” style that became his trademark. Though similar to the early Delta tradition, Hooker’s metrically free approach and unique sound would make him a staple of Detroit blues. Often called the "King of the Boogie," Hooker’s driving, rhythmic approach to guitar playing, and the rhythmic stomping of his feet, became integral parts of the blues. The Rolling Stones, The Animals, and Canned Heat are just a few of the numerous groups whose sound bears Hooker’s stamp to a significant extent. Hooker recorded the lion’s share of his finest work from the late-'40s through the '60s, including blues classics like “Boom Boom," “Boogie Chillen’,” “Baby, Please Don’t Go,” “Dimples” and “Crawlin’ King Snake.” The aforementioned numbers, and many other great songs, have been included on this essential 2-CD set, which compiles the cream of the crop of John Lee Hooker’s legacy.
