Product Description & Reviews

Most everyone knows about the venerable Boogie Man's work with Bonnie Raitt, Carlos Santana, the Stones, Van Morrison, Canned Heat, and other admiring white rock musicians. Few Hooker fans, however, know of his well-received tours and sessions in England in the early '60s with guitarist Tony (T.S.) McPhee's Groundhogs, named after one of Hooker's repertory numbers at the time. As attested to by these digitally re-mastered mono recordings, Hooker and his young acolytes really hit it off, with the Detroit bluesman's alchemical mix of rhythmic urgency and unyielding anguish of tone over the respectful, bare-bones 'Hogs on "I Cover the Waterfront," "Little Dreamer," and nine more. Note: Four haphazardly recorded "bonus tracks" feature Hooker, solo or with unidentified sidemen. --Frank-John Hadley

This brooding lesson in the ''Three D's'' of the blues--despair, death, and desire--is a window into the melancholy soul of Hooker's art. Each of the two discs are separate sets from a '70s solo concert at New York City's Hunter College. And by the t...
