Muze PNote Although blues legend John Lee Hooker has been compiled on more best-of sets than anyone would care to count, it wasn't until 2006's HOOKER that a box set spanning the entirety of his vast, sprawling discography appeared. Arranged chronologically, HOOKER spans four discs and five decades, reaching all the way back to the man's seminal 1948 recording "Boogie Chillen,'" one of the rawest, purest, most groove-intensive blues performances put to wax.
Muze PNote The set rightfully allots a good deal of space to Hooker's '50s and '60s work, emphasizing the spare guitar-and-voice sides he cut for Modern, and the full electric band sides he cut at Chess, Vee-Jay, and a host of smaller labels. It's to Shout Factory's credit that there's little from the '70s or '80s here, with a stress instead placed on Hook's resurgence in the '90s, and his duets with Bonnie Rait, Robert Cray, Carlos Santana, Eric Clapton, and the like. There's barely a skippable cut in the entire box, but it's the early stuff that still slays, with Hooker's drone-centric guitar, unique sense of time, and urgent, earthy vocals slicing through the air like a stiletto. A beautifully assembled set of essential music, HOOKER is a necessity for anyone seeking a comprehensive introduction to the king of endless boogie

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.110)
- Ranked #1 in Rolling Stone's "The Top 10 Reissues Of 2006" -- "[A]n aptly locomotive portrait of Hooker's blues, highlighting his primal composing genius..."

Q (p.110)
- 3 stars out of 5 -- "This is music reduced to its bare necessities, a victory for the primitive power of one-chord grooves and a baritone boom."

Uncut (p.90)
- 5 stars out of 5 -- "Hooker held fast to the visceral mysteries of rural blues, while yoking them to the electric crackle of the industrial north."

Down Beat (p.80)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "Hooker blended Delta incantation and rhythm in a singularly primal way that brought out all the sensuality in his songs."

No Depression (p.79)
- "[H]is basic sound remained constant: songs built around single-chord drones; unrhymed lyrics that often sounded improvised; propulsive but stripped-down rhythmic patterns usually devoid of standard structure or timing."

Mojo (Publisher)
(p.114)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "[H]is collaboration-heavy THE HEALER made him a global superstar but his roots remained firmly in the Mississippi Delta."
