John Lee Hooker Plays and Sings the Blues/House of the Blues 180g Import Vinyl 2LP

Two Original Albums 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.

Originally issued on Chess Records in 1961, Plays & Sings The Blues collects early raw blues material the Hook cut between 1951-1952 including "Mad Man Blues" and "Hey Boogie" from the Gone label and rare covers of Muddy Waters' "Please Don't Go" and Big Maceo Merriweather's "Worried Life Blues."

Originally released on Chess Records in 1959, House Of The Blues collects material Hooker cut between 1951-1954 including the chilling "Leave My Wife Alone," and spare "Sugar Mama" which find the Hook by his lonesome on guitar and vocals while Eddie Kirkland adds to the dynamics with fine guitar accompaniment on "Louise" and "High Priced Woman."

This 1959 House of the Blues Chess album collects 1951-1954 efforts by John Lee Hooker. Some important titles here are the ominous "Leave My Wife Alone," the stark "Sugar Mama," "Ramblin' by Myself," and with Eddie Kirkland on second guitar, "Louise" and "High Priced Woman."
