John Lee Hooker Never Get Out Of These Blues Alive on Limited Edition 180g Import LP

Born near Clarksdale, Mississippi in 1917 to a sharecropper family, John Lee Hooker was one of the last links to the blues of the deep South. He moved to Detroit in the early 1940's and by 1948 had scored his first jukebox #1 hit and million-seller, "Boogie Chillun." Other hits soon followed with "I'm In The Mood," "Crawling Kingsnake" and "Boom Boom" among others. During the 1950s and '60s, Vee Jay Records released a remarkable string of more than 100 of Hooker's songs.

By 1970, Hooker had moved to California and begun working with rock musicians, notably Van Morrison and Canned Heat, with whom he collaborated on several albums and tours. One of the album's from this era was 1972's Never Get Out Of These Blues Alive which was issued on ABC Records and finds the Hook joined by the likes of Van Morrison, Elvin Bishop, Charlie Musselwhite and Steve Miller on a set of 6 Hooker originals and a reimagining of Morrison's "T.B. Sheets."

Hooker continued to tour the U.S. and Europe throughout the '70s and '80s, but it was the release in 1989 of his album, The Healer, that catapulted him back to million-seller status and began what has been the most successful period of his extensive career. He followed The Healer with Mr. Lucky, Boom Boom, Chill Out, Don't Look Back and Best of Friends. In 1991, John Lee was inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame. 180g audiophile vinyl reissue from Music On Vinyl
