John Lee Hooker never needed a band, just himself, his tapping foot and talking style blues vocals and insistent guitar riffs, to work up an audience, whether in a concert hall or in a tiny folk type coffee house. He's won his share of public recognition for his work too, from French awards for his recordings to Ebony's Hall of Fame. The kind of imagery John Lee Hooker conjures up can be heard on the HOOKERS, a riffing, talking blues done with his cousin EARL HOOKER on second guitar, a story about how the two of them together and singly took on same bad actors in a 47th street bar. Some fine piano work by BIG MOOSE WALKER, also a Mississippi blues man helps this fine track.
I WANNA BE YOUR PUPPY is on of John Lee's talking style blues, also featuring his cousin Earl. BABY, BE STRONG is an up-tempo blues with a long instrumental introduction, a tale about how Uncle Sam needs him to go and win the war in Vietnam. HAVE MERCY ON MY SOUL continues the feeling from from I Wanna Be Your Puppy, more of the compelling Hooker talking style. LONESOME MOOD is a slow piece with BIG MOOSE on organ, as is IF YOU TAKE CARE OF ME, I'LL TAKE CARE OF YOU, rich in earnest entreaties of how John Lee will take care of his new girl, if she will only listen to his story. Some sardonic Earl Hooker guitar tells you not to believe this too much, but this does not detract the master from his mood, from casting his spell and making his point.
Among those who have listened long and hard to John Lee Hooker are BUDDY GUY, JUNIOR PARKER, JOHN MAYALL and JOHNNY WINTER and they've all come away that much more enriched. I suggest you do the same. Please note too, the reticent Earl Hooker died not long after making these recordings with his uncle, his promise unfulfilled
-- Frank Driggs on 1983
