John Lee Hooker - The Ultimate Collection: 1948-1990 mp3 album

Rhino's double-disc 1991 set The Ultimate Collection (1948-1990) falls just short of the promise of its title, losing its focus toward the end of the set.

Complete your John Lee Hooker collection.

I could do with less Delta solitude and more urban anger, from 1948's "War Is Over (Goodbye California)" (on Specialty's stretched-thin Graveyard Blues) to 1967's "The Motor City Is Burning" (on MCA's boogieful The Best of John Lee Hooker 1965 to 1974). But just by collecting signature songs from 11 different labels, this 31-track double-CD captures his primal-not-simple beat at an unprecedented level of specificity.

Perfect if you're new to John Lee and an excellent overview for those attempting to efficiently replace several worn-white Hooker LPs, The Ultimate Collection 1948-1990 provides everything except the board he's beating his foot on. Those who would weep and wail that this compilation is incomplete are losing sight of the basic truth about Hooker, he only did one thing.

John Lee Hooker Giant Of Blues. John Lee Hooker Graveyard Blues. John Lee Hooker The Best Of John Lee Hooker. John Lee Hooker Hooker 'N' Heat. John Lee Hooker The Legendary Modern Recordings 1948-1954.
