Biography

Singer-guitarist John Lee Hooker (1917-2001) was one of the most successful blues artists of the second half of the 20th century, yet his hypnotic brand of blues was in many ways a throwback to earlier times, before rules of rhyme, meter, and chord structure became standardized. The Clarksdale, Mississippi-born musician burst on the national scene with his first record, "Boogie ... Read more in Amazon's John Lee Hooker Store

Editorial Reviews

John Lee Hooker had almost completed work on a new album at the time of his death, co-produced by his daughter Zakiya. This album presents 15 of those tracks on which he is joined by a line up of great guest artists in keeping with his other later albums such as The Healer and Mr Lucky. Guests on the album include Canned Heat, George Thorogood, Van Morrison, Johnny Winter and Robert Cray. Some of these artists worked on the tracks with John in the studio, whilst others have teamed up with Zakiya Hooker to add the remaining touches to these final recordings.

Mr. Hooker certainly isn't the only artist to release "new" music after his death. But his new CD sure-enough is better than almost anyone else who has. Rather than a plodding, macabre effort to cash in one more time (you know the ones I'm talking about), this CD is as vibrant as, well, life!
Following Mr. Hooker's recent success formula once again, a stellar cast contributes. And oh, mama, what a lineup: Van Morrison, Elvin Bishop, Jack Cassidy, Johnny Winter, Warren Hayes, Dickie Betts and George Thoroughgood. With these backing musicians, even I could sound passable. But behind Mr. Lucky you can imagine the great results. Serious performers only, if you please.
My personal favorite track is "Dimples" featuring a duet with Van The Man and Elvin Bishop on second lead guitar. But that choice might just change on repeated listens. There ain't a dog amongst the 15 tunes here, and how often can you say that about a CD anymore, even on so-called "Greatest Hits" packages?

This is one of the most beautiful collections of John Lee's works. As a former employee of the Man himself, it is great to hear some recordings that were never released. "Six Page Letter" is breathtakingly beautiful, and "Funky Mabel" is as soulful as it is funky. "Dimples" is a real treasure. The CD has great sound quality and is now among my favorites.
I'm sure John Lee would have been thrilled to hear this delightful CD!

Saw John Lee Hooker at the Fillmore West in the late 60's. What a presence. He is one of the giants of his genre. This Face to Face is a good addition to my blues collection. He kept his quality high late in life, this is good stuff for any JLH fan.

Plenty to enjoy here, good sound, great beats, lots of soul, true blues (well just one slightly mushy track). Hooker fans won't be disappointed. Very nicely produced by his kids!

too bad he passed away but this is more of the man you love. His droning chords with unexpected changes are always a thrill to listen to.
