JOHN LEE FOR PREZ

"Great guitar" - Corfu Blues Man

  • Lord have mercy!

    Have the porter's boy run like the wind to Nonesuch.

  • Pray God we're in time for them to fire up a reprint for when the Blues Man quote hits the street.

  • Also ~
    "One of the best albums of a distinguished career ... the sharp gallows humour and uncanny impersonation on John Lee Hooker for President, which imagines the great old bluesman's manifesto for the White House."

  • "Everyone gets one bourbon, one scotch, one beer
    Three times a day if they stay cool
    And little chill’uns get milk, cream and alcohol
    Two times a day if they stay involved in school."

    Oh Em Gee - the **voice**. i had to check and re-listen and ... that is almost lèse majesté. Of course i go there first: 2 bars in, the blood drained and it was like "Big Jim gotta hear this one. Pray god i'm time. Pity i'se already sent the porter's boy off to Nonesuch ... up to me now to puff and wheeze the good nooz from Aix to Zagori". Now there's a blues to work on, LHM.
