Description
This is a limited edition 180 gram vinyl LP pressing of John Lee Hooker's debut on Riverside Records -- The Country Blues of John Lee Hooker.

Holding true to his Mississippi roots, John Lee Hooker is unaccompanied and playing acoustic guitar, creating a wonderfully varied set of deep Delta blues, moans, boogies, one field holler -- and even a bit of hokum. Some songs are autobiographical, others reworkings of blues standards-all stamped with the hauntingly personal Hooker touch.

The audio for this 60th anniversary release is sourced from the original stereo tapes that were mastered on all analog by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio.

Label: Craft Recordings
