Wax Love present a reissue of John Lee Hooker's House Of The Blues, originally released in 1959. House Of The Blues collects John Lee Hooker's early 1950s shellac singles for the legendary Chicago blues label Chess Records. Born sometime in the 1910s or early 1920s in rural Mississippi, Hooker moved to Detroit in 1943 to work at the Ford Motor Company and soon began frequenting the city's blues clubs. Hooker recorded for many labels throughout the 1950s but it was with Chess that he cut his most memorable and famous sides. This album is the beginning of that fruitful relationship and features simply Hooker's beautiful blues vocals, raw guitar playing, and foot stomping to keep the beat. There's no more raw and real blues than right here on this here LP.
