Detroit Blues 1950-1951
     

Detroit Blues 1950-1951

by John Lee Hooker
 
These recordings were made between 1950 and 1951. One of the thumbs-up signs this collection gets is that, with the exception of "House Rent Boogie," there aren't a lot of obvious choices listed (no "Boogie Chillun," no "Crawling King Snake," etc.). And at the time of this stateside release in 1991, Collectables included seven tunes that hadn't really been out

Overview

These recordings were made between 1950 and 1951. One of the thumbs-up signs this collection gets is that, with the exception of "House Rent Boogie," there aren't a lot of obvious choices listed (no "Boogie Chillun," no "Crawling King Snake," etc.). And at the time of this stateside release in 1991, Collectables included seven tunes that hadn't really been out there before in any official capacity. Another big positive is that Eddie "Guitar" Burns is featured prominently here as a soloist, and his killer tunes like "Squeeze Me, Baby," "Gangster Blues," and "Grievin' Blues" are here as well. While everything on this set has now been issued in some other more chronological, historical, and musicologically annotated way in the 21st century, this comp is still well worth seeking out as a used item, because it smokes.
