The songs are a great overview of JLH's career including his classic Newport Jazz Festival appearance and his famous 1965 European American Folk Blues Festival version of "Hobo Blues". Also included is a track from his excellent 1980s "Maintenance Shop Blues" appearance (I wish they would re-release the Albert King Set!).
All in all this is a wonderful compilation. It shows Hooker in all stages of his playing; by himself, with various guest artists, with bands and of course with Santana doing "The Healer". I would also strongly recommend the two JLH DVD's from Vestapol: "John Lee Hooker and Friends" and "John Lee Hooker:Rare Performances"(Amazon can get these by Special Order). This DVD is must for all Blues and American Music fans!
Great foot-stompin' boogie, but also killer blues from a giant talent. Not so much a greatest hits as an exploration of his style in role in defining the sound for blues rock.
Well worth the price.
I hope we are not allowing current greats slip by the wayside.
I wish Amazon had a 3 criteria rating that would make for a quicker, more accurate and fair rating of Cd's, DVD's and Blu-ray's.
2. Quality of Audio
3. Quality of Video (for DVD's and Blu-ray's)
Artists that wish to have there performances recorded and recognized should be held to a standard. Poor Audio or Video, no matter how good the performance, is still a bad product. Those who would still purchase sub-standard Audio or Video quality recordings and rank that product highly just because of performance are not doing the industry or the band justice. Demand better and we will get it, settle for less and that's what you'll get.

If you recorded John Lee off TV in the 90's than you have as good as it gets. The Ultimate John Lee performance is with Van Morrison of "Don't Look Back", it is not on this disc. Read morePublished on November 6, 2010 by Scrappy
Boring, poor performances that drag on and on, not the (solo) foot-stompin' tasteful guitar playing and singing I love from this man. Read morePublished on February 1, 2008 by waldo
