Drawn from the very first series of sessions John Lee Hooker conducted for Vee-Jay Records in 1959, I’m John Lee Hooker features a number of songs that he had already recorded for other labels. Indeed, as is discussed on the sleeve notes, John Lee Hooker was renowned for recording the same material for multiple labels! Despite the ‘heard it before’ implications, I’m John Lee Hooker is an exceptional album, containing many of the already well known songs he had established his reputation with at the time of recording. As such, it would become an influential album, affecting the British blues boom of the time.
