Description
Though born in the Mississippi Delta, EARL HOOKER’s moved to Chicago when he was just a baby and by the mid-‘40s he was performing with one of the early legends of Chicago blues, ROBERT NIGHTHAWK. Hooker is perhaps best known for his distinct slide guitar style and as a sideman for such luminaries as BUDDY GUY, JUNIOR WELLS and JOHN LEE HOOKER (his cousin). In 1968, he assembled a crack band including PINETOP PERKINS and FREDDIE ROULETTE, and they’re heard here in fine form on what is probably Hooker’s most well-known and best recorded effort
