Original 1959 Album Plus Bonus Tracks!

Known to music fans around the world as the "King of the Boogie," John Lee Hooker endures as one of the true superstars of the blues genre: the ultimate beholder of cool. His work is widely recognized for its impact on modern music – his simple, yet deeply effective songs transcend borders and languages around the globe. Each decade of Hooker's long career brought a new generation of fans and fresh opportunities for the ever-evolving artist.

Of Hooker's innumerable recordings, this 1959 Riverside date is perhaps the truest to his Mississippi roots. Unaccompanied and playing acoustic instead of his usual amplified guitar, he turns in a wonderfully varied set of deep Delta blues, moans, boogies, one field holler, and even a bit of hokum. Some are autobiographical, others reworkings of blues standards - all stamped with the hauntingly personal Hooker touch. The album was originally issued in the U.S. under the title The Country Blues of John Lee Hooker, then in Britain with a slight change of wording.

This 180g vinyl re-issue from Vinyl Lovers comes adorned with the latter Folk Blues of John Lee Hooker title and includes the trio of bonus tracks "Love Blues," "Sugar Mama" and "Behind The Plow."
