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.

Travelin' is one of his finest early albums heavy on electric guitar; he'd go back and forth between acoustic and electric depending on his mood and the band, and this album for the early R&B powerhouse VeeJay showcases the style Hooker had that was uniquely his own. This AAA edition is the perfect way to add this blues classic to your collection.
