John Lee Hooker - It Serve You Right To Suffer 2LP (180g Analogue Productions)

180g 45RPM 2LP Reissue Mastered at AcousTech Mastering and Plated & Pressed at Quality Record Pressings!

Originally released on Impulse in 1966, It Serve You Right to Suffer serves up eight tracks of topnotch blues, complete with the boogie groove that John Lee Hooker became synonymous with. Highlights include the title track; the uptempo, low-key "Shake It Baby"; the relaxed but rhythmically tight "Country Boy"; the danceable "Bottle Up & Go"; and the slow, sexy shuffle of "Sugar Mama." Everything here, basically, is hypnotic and engaging.

And another surprise is in store for those who compare Hooker's late recordings with those made in the Sixties. His unmistakable, raw voice has fully matured, but his incantatory style of singing appears markedly finer and more flexible. And then there is the perfect gem of a rhythm group whose sinewy sounds fill the grooves with merciless gravitational force. No wonder this is one of the blues icon's most formidable affairs.

Mastered at AcousTech Mastering and pressed on two pristine slabs of 180g vinyl at Quality Record Pressings, Analogue Productions' 45rpm version of this 1966 classic stands as one of the best-sounding, richest blues records you'll ever have the opportunity to hear. So many of Hooker's albums weren't recorded well, but this is an exception, and this exquisite edition does justice to all of the information in the grooves.
