“That’s My Story” by John Lee Hooker - album review

TJR says

A single-day session recorded on February 9, 1960 at Reeves Sound Studio in New York City. It’s a real intimate affair – he knows what he’s doing when he breaks it down to a whisper and barely a touched string. All ears lean in. Opens up with “I Need Some Money” which, although credited to John Lee, takes all of its cues from Barret Strong’s big hit of the previous year, “Money (That’s What I Want)”. Side 1 closer “Gonna Use My Rod” sees Johnny develop the tough-guy persona, mean and evil, looking for trouble. Woe betides the man messing with his woman. “One Of These Days” is best from the flipside – a real low-key spiritual moan. All in all, this is a very fine episode in the John Lee Hooker story.
