    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.

    It's easy to see and hear why his music is covered so often. Spirituals are supposed to stir the soul, he comforts the distressed with every word and note.

    I don't post as often as I should but listening to the (under appreciated?) Earl Hooker I had to

    Earl Hooker - The Moon is Rising
    Arhoolie Records

    Solid disc. I am liking this one better than the oft recommended "Two Bugs and a Roach" also on arhoolie. Plus this has live Earl Hooker. Highly Recommended

    Earl is waaaaay under appreciated, IMO.

    My copy of John Lee's Urban Blues has a couple of bonus tracks with Earl, including this one. Funky.
