AllMusic Review by

Whether he was playing acoustic or electric guitar, or was featured alone or with a band behind him, John Lee Hooker was always simply John Lee Hooker, delivering a raw version of country blues gone urban with a kind of rustic power that he returned to constantly throughout his long career (he often returned to the same songs as well). This set shows him doing what he did, which was, again, being John Lee Hooker.
