This Soul Jam release presents one of Hooker’s most difficult to find albums on CD, the eponymous John Lee Hooker. It was originally released in 1962 by the Fantasy Records’ subsidiary Galaxy label. The album includes a selection of hard-to-find recordings taped with his electric guitar during different sessions in the 1950s, all of them produced by Bernard Besman, the man who helped define Hooker’s recorded sound, which has often relied upon heavy walking beats, boogies, and an eerie atmosphere.

In addition to the original masterpiece, this remastered collector’s edition also contains 8 bonus tracks from the same period.

JOHN LEE HOOKER, vocals, electric guitar and foot stomping.
Additional personnel information is detailed inside booklet.

Recorded in the 1950s in Detroit and Chicago.
