AllMusic Review by

This reissue contains the entirety of Hooker's 1966 Cafe Au Go-Go set, and adds five bonus tracks from his 1972 album, Live at Soledad Prison. Luther Tucker is one of the guitarists for the Soledad portion, which has a somewhat more electric, rock-oriented sound than the Au Go-Go material. The disc only has five of the seven cuts from the original Soledad album, but that's okay, as the two missing items featured John Lee Hooker, Jr. on lead vocals, rather than Hooker himself.
