AllMusic Review by

A sampling of the prolific and idiosyncratic blues artist John Lee Hooker's early output is collected on this double-CD best-of, which features the man, his guitar, and his ubiquitous tapping foot performing his seminal hit "Boogie Chillen" in addition to classics like "High Priced Woman," "Crawling King Snake," and "Drifting From Door to Door." Comprising performances dating from the early 1950s, this set is a tidy representation of this compelling performer's early work.
