“On Campus” by John Lee Hooker - album review

TJR says

Arriving in September, this set was following on from “The Big Soul of John Lee Hooker”, and continued in a not too dis-similar vein, retaining the female backing singers and the sax, with the organ making way for the piano. “I Want To Ramble” sees John Lee up to his old tricks by messin’ around with the whole Boogie Chillun / Walkin The Boogie theme; I’m a sucker for it every time. To be fair, it’s pretty cool; the upfront focus is on acoustic guitar and drums and it has a real swingin’ beat. All in all this is another consistently decent offering, but less vital than the preceding LP.
