Guitarist EARL HOOKER would undoubtedly have gone on to enjoy a major international career during the Blues/Rock era, had he been blessed with better health; but he suffered from Tuberculosis and sadly died in 1970, at the age of only forty.

A cousin of John Lee Hooker, Earl was an exceptional slide player, known widely as 'The guitarists' guitarist'.

He recorded few vocals as he was hindered by a stutter, to compensate, he concentrated on developing his playing technique.

Guitarist EARL HOOKER would undoubtedly have gone on to enjoy a major international career during the Blues/Rock era, had he been blessed with better health; but he suffered from Tuberculosis and sadly died in 1970, at the age of only forty.

A cousin of John Lee Hooker, Earl was an exceptional slide player, known widely as 'The guitarists' guitarist'.

He recorded few vocals as he was hindered by a stutter, to compensate, he concentrated on developing his playing technique.

This compilation concentrates on his earliest recordings for a variety of record labels between 1953-62, several of which were not commercially released until after his death.

This is the first time that this body of work has been thus compiled, and many of these sides are difficult to find elsewhere on CD.
