“Travelin’” by John Lee Hooker - album review

TJR says

This is a really great listen from start to finish – unlike many of John Lee’s foot stomping one-man holler-a-thons it takes a real gentle, laid back approach, even though it has a full band of guitar, bass and drum. The whole group are with the programme; each as chilled as the other, adding to the real intimate affair. What it does, is let the lyrics take effect; a real fine set of blues tales covering ghetto life, money troubles, women troubles and drinking problems. There are very few artists who can play so loose, so raw, and yet command your attention all the way. Simply, Johnnie Lee has got the x-factor.
