John Lee Hooker & Canned Heat
Hooker ‘N’ Heat  

Friends, we have a situation here. We have lots of albums finished and ready to pack and ship out, except that we have run out of our custom boxes and there is a delay in getting the replacements. So while we wait for the new shipment of the custom boxes we have decided to offer to send you the album now in plain white boxes. We will ship you the custom box when they it’s ready, at our expense. This may take until February.

Here is an album featuring another of our blues heroes, the incomparable John Lee Hooker. Out of the 100+ albums that he did in his 50+ year recording career this one rates at the top in representing his deep, earthy voice, raw old Epiphone Sheraton guitar and tapping left foot style with a few extra beats thrown in here and there. It was the first album to put Hooker on the Billboard charts. Canned Heat backs him up in a way that shows the great respect the band had for the Hook’s boogie, the engineers went through eight amplifiers before finding him a clapped out old Silvertone that reproduced the funky sound of his earlier albums and the result is one of the best “mixed generation” blues albums of the era. We picked what we felt were the very best tracks from three reels’ worth of material to squeeze onto two reels, and brother, I’m here to say it was not an easy choice.
