Orig '59 mono blues LP JOHN LEE HOOKER Highway Of Blue
Highway Of Blues LP - "STICKS" McGHEE/JOHN LEE HOOKER (Audio Lab AL 1520) mono
Original 1959 mono 'split' LP. Side 1 features 6 McGHEE tracks, side 2 is 6 tracks of HOOKER greatness. Audio Lab was a shortlived King Records budget label & these early '50s recordings were unreleased on LP until this release. "STICK's" tracks include: "Whiskey, Women And Loaded Dice," "Sad, Bad, Glad," "Dealin' From The Bottom," other jump blues winners. JOHN LEE tracks include: "Nightmare Blues," "Moaning Blues," "Devil's Jump," more prime HOOKER country blues genius, all killers. A hard-to-find album & this one is in nice condition, plays well. Certainly a 'must have' for any/all 1950s blues/HOOKER fans/collectors. Winning bidder, please do not send payment until you receive my invoice - shipping charges reflected by ebay are usually not accurate.
