2 - HOOKER, JOHN LEE - BOOM BOOM: VEE-JAY SINGLES 1959-1962 - (LP) 
WAX LOVE


Following stints with Modern and Chess, legendary blues man John Lee Hooker joined forces with the esteemed Vee-Jay label out of Chicago in 1955. For the next 7 years Hooker cut some of the most explosive and legendary blues sides of his career and solidified his position as one of the greatest performers of the electric blues era. By the 1960s the folk and blues revival would make international stars of many blues performers but at the time of these Vee-Jay recordings this was music made by African-Americans mostly for the African-American market, from Chicago to the South to Los Angeles and New York and points between, and Vee-Jay was one of the first and most successful African-American owned record labels. While many of his earlier sides featured only Hooker on guitar and vocals, his Vee-Jay sides feature a full rocking rhythm section. Essential sides from one of the all-time greatest American performers of the 20th century. This second volumes spans the years 1959-1962 and includes classics like "Boom Boom", "Want Ad Blues", and 16 more great Hooker blues joints.

3 - HOOKER, JOHN LEE - BURNIN' - (LP) 
CHARLY


Charly pays JOHN LEE HOOKER's "Burnin'", the classic Vee Jay album from 1962, its long overdue honours and gives it the re-release treatment. "Burnin'" is easily one of best records next to "It Serves You Right To Suffer" and "I'm John Lee Hooker" that the blues master has recorded with a backing band without sacrificing his characteristic, monotonous beat. Along with an absolutely awe-inspiring version of the LEROY CARR track "Blues Before Sunrise" stands the indestructible "Boom, Boom" - here buffed up by Joe Hunter's piano - which became the unofficial anthem of British Invasion bands like ANIMALS&THEM. The eleven remastered analogue tracks of the original are here accompanied by five ultra rare bonus tracks. 180gr vinyl in a heavy duty cover with an updated, authentic version of the original artwork.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Boom Boom 02. Process 03. Lost A Good Girl 04. New Leaf 05. Blues Before Sunrise 06. Let's Make It 07. I Got A Letter 08. Thelma 09. Drug Store Woman 10. Keep Your Hands To Yourself 11. What Do You Say

4 - HOOKER, JOHN LEE - BURNING HELL - (LP) 
RUMBLE


Blues legend John Lee Hooker cut countless records beginning with his debut for Modern in 1948 and going some 50+ years until his death in 2001. With such a vast discography it can be easy to lose track of some records and Burning Hell, recorded in Detroit in 1959 with just his guitar and vocals, is one such lost record. But this album deserves so much to be rediscovered, a brilliant set from his "acoustic" period this is raw southern acoustic blues at its best and a truly brilliant collection of songs. Rumble is pleased to bring this lost classic back to light on LP.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Burning Hell 02. Graveyard Blues 03. Baby Please Don't Go 04. Jackson ,tennessee 05. You Live Your Life And I'll Live Mine 06. Smokestack Lightnin' 07. How Can You Do It? 08. I Don't Want No Woman If Her Hair Ain't No Longer Than Mine 09. I Rolled And Turned And Cried The Whole Night Long 10. Blues For My Baby 11. Key To The Highway 12. Natchez Fire
