Reseña de álbum

Like any record company worth their salt, MCA knows a good gimmick when they see it, and when the millennium came around — well, the 20th Century Masters — The Millennium Collection wasn't too far behind. Supposedly, the millennium is a momentous occasion, but it's hard to feel that way when it's used as another excuse to turn out a budget-line series. But apart from the presumptuous title, 20th Century Masters — The Millennium Collection turns out to be a very good budget-line series. True, it's impossible for any of these brief collections to be definitive, but they're nevertheless solid samplers that don't feature a bad song in the bunch. For example, take John Lee Hooker's 20th Century volume — it's an irresistible 12-song summary of his MCA and Chess years. There may be a couple of noteworthy songs missing, but many of his best-known songs for the label are here, including "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer," "I'm in the Mood," "I'm Bad Like Jesse James," "Sugar Mama," "Ground Hog Blues," "It's My Own Fault," and "It Serves You Right to Suffer." Serious fans will want something more extensive, but this is an excellent introduction for neophytes and a great sampler for casual fans, considering its length and price. That doesn't erase the ridiculousness of the series title, but the silliness is excusable when the music and the collections are good.

a lesson in the blues...

more people need to discover JLH!! i just heard a cool cover of "serves me right to suffer" by Eddie Skuller, and i can imagine many others also covering some of John's classics.

Johnny Lee H. Rocks

Yeah that pretty much sums it up, this boy rocks the blues

As good as it gets

This is a tremendous album for John Lee Hooker. I particularly like the time span this album covers. Only thing missing is "I'm in the Mood" with Bonnie Raitt. It has the title song, just not the duet with Bonnie. I'd give this alubum 8 stars if there were available.
