John Lee Hooker | The Healer

Hidden Masterpieces
27.07.2011..

An awesome album of blues, properly produced by Roy Rogers and supported, when released in 1989, by a video clip aired on the major international TV music channels. This helped a lot to the success of the album, which win a Grammy Award and brings back the interest, somehow soothed, for the "devil music".

The Hook” presents here ten tracks, among which the unfailing I'm In The Mood, Sally Mae, Baby Lee and some originals of great technique like the beautiful My Dream and the title track, The Healer, an amazing duet with Carlos Santana and his band.

The album features a wide array of guest stars including Bonnie Raitt, Robert Cray, Charlie Musselwhite, Henry Vestine, Filo De La Parra, Larry Taylor, and Rogers himself.

Lee Hooker, at the age of 70, was one of the greatest blues leaders with an unmistakable and inimitable style but, with The Healer, he became famous all over the world.
