60th Anniversary Reissue On 180g Vinyl LP!
All-Analog Mastering From the Original Stereo Tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio!
Pressed at Memphis Record Pressing!


John Lee Hooker's 1959 debut on Riverside Records is perhaps the truest to his Mississippi roots. Unaccompanied and playing acoustically instead of his usual amplified guitar, he turned in 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. It's pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Memphis Record Pressing.

"the music on it is as pungent and dusty and stinging as it was when it was first released 60 years ago and sounds present and clear thanks to the steady mastering work of Kevin Gray. Hooker was already a vital presence in the blues scene with electric singles like 'Boogie Chillen' and 'Crawlin' King Snake' already under his belt. This session, recorded in Detroit in early 1959, was proof that he had just as much bite and grit when using an acoustic guitar. The wail and moan of the blues idiom was ever-present, but swimming alongside it is a musing quality that turns 'Behind The Plow' and 'Church Bell Tone' into haunting expressions of Hooker's past as the son of a sharecropper and preacher. A vital document for anyone with an interest in the history of Delta blues and this once-in-a-generation talent." - Paste Magazine
