A classic collection of 20 songs from this legendary blues guitarist. Along with Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf, the Hook casts a giant shadow that covers the Delta Blues of the 30's, the primal electric Rhythm 'N' Blues of the late 40's and eclectic blendings of 60's rock and beyond. Those bumping, pumping boogies can still fire up the rampant randiness of anyone who 'has the boogie-woogie in 'em and that's got to come out.'
If you like the great mans work you will love this. The writers have gone for exact transcriptions, so this means quite a few altered tunings, OK if you have a spare guitar to leave set up!! Many of the songs are in open e blues, so they are quite simple to play. Simple but very effective. Now if I could just get the voice right! Anonymous
