This is one of the singularly historically important blues records: This great collection of early JLH recordings, collects many of his pre-Chess and pre-VeeJay works, made for the fledgling "Modern" label. The songs here are stripped-down, unadorned and unembellished , skeletal blues, mostly just John Lee Hooker's booming voice and bouncing guitar patterns. This is the spring-source of all his later recordings, and the root of much - if not most - of the modern blues and rock. Absolutely indispensible!!!! Miss it now and suffer with the Blues later! Track listing: I Need Love So Bad/Sally Mae/Key to the Highway/How Can You Do It?/It Hurts Me So//She Left Me/I Got Eyes For You/Let's Talk It Over/I'm a Howling Wolf/Tease You Daddy

·                               CONDITION:

 

·                               RECORD

 

(IMPORTANT NOTE: unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded!; we  grade records under the strong, diffuse room light or discrete sunlight)

 

(a)          WE GRADE THE VINYL AS STRONG VG++. A few light abrasions  ARE VISIBLE, but they appear fairly  insignificant relative to the overall condition of the vinyl, and are only moderately visually distracting. For most part, the vinyl looks impeccable, without any MAJOR visual flaws or imperfections. Much of the original luster is intact, and the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new.

 

(b)            The record is pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which was usually used for the first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on such thick vinyl pressings is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic. Do not expect to obtain such a majestic analog sound from a digital recording!

 

(c)           Mono pressing of this title is much rarer, and by far more  preferable to its FAKE ("electronically rechannelled") stereo counterpart. We estimate that FAKE stereo copies of this album outnumber monos by a ratio of at least 3:1.

 

(d)          Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior, digital recording!!!

 

 

·       COVER

 

THE COVER IS NICE --- ABOUT VERY GOOD++ (VG++).

 

The following flaws or imperfections are noted on the cover:

 

-         Cover has some light ring wear (nothing significant); On the scale from 1 to 10 (1 being the least, and  10 being the most severe), we assess the severity of ring wear as 4  (front side) and 1 (back side)

 

-         Cover shows some light yellowing on both sides, apparently from aging   (nothing significant).

 

-         Cover has a small color-coding sticker in in one corner, which may be possible to remove with a little effort (we did not attempt to)

 

-         Cover has a few tiny wrinkles along the spine

 

-         Minor shelf wear noted on the seams (nothing significant)

 

-         The cover has a few tiny scratch marks on the front side   (nothing significant)
