    John Lee Hooker "Documenting The Sensation Recordings 1948-52" (Ace UK) 4/24/2020

    Description
    Ace acquired a lot of John Lee Hooker sides when we bought the Sensation label from Bernard Besman. Bernie had also sold some sides to United Artists and to Greene Bottle before then. However, no one had carried out a forensic investigation into exactly what we had bought, up until now.

    These three CDs contain all of the Besman John Lee Hooker sides gathered in one place for the first time. Also included is the Little Eddie Kirkland RPM single with John Lee Hooker on second guitar and vocal.

    There has been meticulous tape research for best sources so the mastering far exceeds anything presented before as anyone who has the ‘Boogie Chillen’/Boogie Chillen’ #2 (take 2)’ 78 recently issued by Ace on the Sensation label can attest.

    19 different, previously unreleased versions of songs appeared in the research for the project, including extended takes and alternative versions.

    There is an introductory note from Peter Guralnick and a comprehensive overview of the music from Dr Wayne Goins, Director of Jazz Studies at Kansas State University.

    It also comes with a sessionography covering all the tracks on the CDs.

    These early Hooker recordings are akin to jazz as much as the blues, with an improvisatory feel, harking back to the pre-war era, but with a very distinct approach and a unique sound presaging the blues that was to come, into the 50s and 60s.

    Comes in a 3CD digipak box set.

    Wonderful. Ace is the label to get the job done right and Peter Guralnick is the best at this type of essay.
