All Music Guide - Chris Slawecki
With new John Lee Hooker songs, new versions of old Hooker songs, four duets with and a new song by Van Morrison, Don't Look Back continues the venerable bluesman's string of excellent albums in his '90s renaissance. Produced by Morrison, it also celebrates the 25th anniversary of their first recording together, as Morrison guested on Hooker's seminal Never Get Out of These Blues Alive in 1972. Don't Look Back hits the ground running with a rowdy, thumpin' remake of "Dimples" with Los Lobos; "Spellbound" pounds out more of Hooker's stylistic trademark -- throbbing, raw, hard-driving boogie. The Morrison tracks include the ruminative title cut and his haunting "The ...

    Awesome blues, Hooker style.

    This is John Lee Hooker's last original recording. And boy is it awesome. I am a big fan of the blues. I've listened to guys like BB King, Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan, Son Seals, Buddy Guy, and a few others. Hooker stand out with his style and originality. This is one of the best blues CDs I've heard so far. This disc is the mellow style blues, a collaboration with Van Morrison. Hooker sounds like a bluesman who's been around, been through a lot. His experience, craft, and energy shine through on this disc. He turns in impressive guitar solos, especially "Red House," and vocals, especially "Dimples." I am not sure I can name the favorite tune on this disc. First track, "Dimples," is very impressive. It's a fast, perky track, stuffed with some impressive harmonica and Hooker's vocals. Play it again! :) "Ain't No Big Thing" - another one of my favorite tracks, vocals- and piano-intensive. "Don't Look Back" is another tune with Van Morrison's vocals - excellent song. "Blues Before Sunrise" is excellent, both guitars and vocals. I loved Mr. Hooker's ode to San Francisco in "Frisco Blues" - it is an awesome piece of art. The disc closes with no less intense "Red House" and "Rainy Day". This is the kind of blues you can play down low and have it in the background, or you can turn it up to full volume on a good stereo which can really make you feel the rich and intense color scheme of this album and its personal warmth and meaning that Hooker projects. This really doesn't sound like a studio recording. This is of live, concert quality because you can hear those improvisations, Hooker and Morrison making some exchanges, slight imperfections sometimes, etc. This makes this CD all the better. Get it - you won't regret it. This is a classic, although a modern one.
