Description


The image you have in your mind of the bluesman, that itinerant performer roaming the American roads with a guitar on his back, is from John Lee Hooker, the prolific and prodigious bluesman who influenced generations of bluesmen while roaming the steppes in the '50s and '60s. He changed labels like other performers change shirts, and was in and out of the studio for basically every major American label in those years.

That's My Story is one of the multiple albums he put out in 1960, right when his acoustic blues stylings were influencing folkies around America in the American Folk Music boom. But in the album's opening track he pays homage to another Detroit institution: Motown, which had just started to have success thanks to "Money," which Hooker reconstitutes into a bluesman's plea here. As opposed to his later records on the electric guitar, That's My Story is a showcase of Hooker's acoustic work, and this AAA edition is a perfect way to add it to your collection.
