John Lee Hooker is 'the most down-home of the major post-war blues figures, a most authentic singer of the way-back, close-to-the-soil kind of blues', as Orrin Keepnews once wrote. Of his innumerable recordings, The Country Blues of John Lee Hooker is perhaps the truest to Hooker's Mississippi roots. The celebrated guitarist set his usual amplified instrument aside, in exchange for an acoustic guitar, only accompanied by his voice. The result is an intimate, wonderfully varied set of deep Delta blues, moans and boogies. Some songs are autobiographical, others re-workings of blues standardsall stamped with the hauntingly personal John Lee Hooker touch.
