John Lee Hooker - Shake It Baby EP (1962)



A re-up of this fantastic set of JLH at the American Folk Blues Festival in 1962. Not surprising that young teenagers such as Tony McPhee became Hooker addicts when listening such excitating gems. Catch it here.

While the little whitey called the Beatles were singing"Love Me Do" or "She Loves You" (and the further year "I Wanna Hold Your Hand", what a joke) for young virgins wetting their underwear for the first time, John Lee Hooker sang the real thing for women who knew what it was to have a male sex in them, how to shake their butt to make it grow or how to shake it with hands if needed. This extraordinary hot version of "Shake It Baby" with Willie Dixon, T-Bone Walker and Jump Jackson smells the spontaneity but was a big hit in the European charts. Who say best? I never a more sexual incitation in all music history. The 3 other songs are from the same concert, actually a travelling festival with bluesmen freshly rediscovered by little white students in USA and by those of working class in UK (they will be the bluesboom). Not so hot but nice too. Enjoy it here.
