Though born in the Mississippi Delta, Earl Hooker's family moved to Chicago when he was just a baby and by the mid-‘40s he was performing with one of the early legends of Chicago blues, Robert Nighthawk. Hooker is perhaps best known for his distinct slide guitar style and as a sideman for such blues luminaries as Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, and his cousin John Lee Hooker. In 1968, he assembled a crack band including Pinetop Perkins and Freddie Roulette, and they're heard here in fine form on what is probably Hooker's most well-known and best recorded effort, 2 Bugs And A Roach. Reissued on colored 180g vinyl in a deluxe tip-on jacket.
