In 1970, iconic bluesman John Lee Hooker put out a double album backed by California boogie band Canned Heat ("Going Up the Country"). It offered credibility for the younger band and a wider audience for the older musician. Hooker was a key influence on boogie rock bands like Heat, ZZ Top, and George Thorogood and the Destroyers, who had a hit with Hooker's "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer." I prefer Hooker's earlier, more stripped down work, but Canned Heat is generally a sympathetic backing band. What's curious about this CD is that it's 10 tracks and the "Hooker 'n Heat" album is 17 tracks, so what's the point of a best of?
