    Can't beat home made. The "base" is left over oak from building the table. The thing ways a ton.

    That's such an awesome cover.
    I knew the tunes from comps and other releases, but not the cover, when I stumbled on a reissue a few(10?) years ago. The pressing is kinda meh, but I'll be keeping it forever because of the cover.

    Well, decided to pick up one of those new remastered high-definition 180 gram records featuring John Lee Hooker and his electric guitar along with his quartet, showcasing Eddie Taylor on rhythm. Originally, the music store had been asking $30 for it, but had reduced it several times, down to $12 so thought to grab it.


    I've only listened haphazardly to material of the early greats (Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, et al) due to the poor quality of both reproduction and condition of the records. However, thought this LP might give me insight into the roots of this Blues genre that I appreciate from the performers of today, eh?

    I was amazed at how the techs were able to clean up the sound from this compilation that was first offered back in 62 of "Folk Blues" containing recordings in the early 50's. No pops, static, or white noise!...just pure playing of the 30's/40's.
