AllMusic Review by

A 12-song budget set of Hooker's recordings, primarily for the Vee-Jay label with a few strays from his original Modern recordings thrown in. The hits and re-cuts bring us tunes like "Boogie Chillen," "I'm in the Mood," "Maudie," "Crawling King Snake," and the title track. You really can't go wrong with any Hooker from this period and -- as a budget set -- the transfers are clean enough to recommend adding this one to the collection.
