John Lee Hooker DRIFTIN' THRU THE BLUES Vinyl Record
Format: 180 gram LP There was an almost religious quality to the way John Lee Hooker saw himself as a musician: The way a preacher is a vessel for the Word of God, John Lee Hooker was a vessel for the blues. After running away from a life of back breaking labor in the cotton fields of Mississippi at the age of 14, Hooker drifted from town to town until he ended up in the booming city of Detroit, in the early 1940s. Although Detroit's blues scene was small compared to that of Chicago, it wasn't long until young John Lee from Mississippi was a big man on campus. The five tracks on side a were recorded in Detroit between 1949 and 1950 and feature stereo recordings of mainly solo performances by John Lee Hooker. The five tracks on Side B, also recorded in Detroit, are mono recordings primarily from 1954 and feature Hooker in a band format backed by tenor sax, piano and drums. Tracks - Side A: 1. Driftin' from Door to Door 2. She Left Me on My Bended Knee 3. Let Your Daddy Ride 4. Turn Over a New Leaf 5. Don't You Remember Me Side B: 1. Hug And Squeeze You 2. I Love You Baby 3. The Syndicate 4. Boogie Woogie All Night Long 5. Good Rockin' Mama.
