This collection packs as many John Lee Hooker classics as possible into two discs. Hooker was one of the most prolific bluesmen ever, and his catalog is an intimidating labyrinth of label-hopping amid countless recording dates, but ANTHOLOGY does an excellent job of gathering the crucial tracks from across the wide array of labels Hooker recorded for, to present a definitive portrait of his five decades of music-making. It’s all here, from Hooker’s early, stoic death-stomps to his genre-defining juke-joint boogies, and his collaborations with everyone from Canned Heat to Bonnie Raitt. If you want a solid Hooker intro but you’re not quite ready for a box set yet, dip into the ANTHOLOGY.
