Right from the start I would like to make clear that this is "a traditional blues album". However this is a traditional blues album with something different in it. John Lee Hooker JR., as mentioned also in the review below, doesn't sound anything close to his father, his style is completely different, very close to the tradition of Chicago style but with something more add in the mix that make this CD sound really refreshing and innovative if you will. He has a great voice and also, and equally important, a very personal way of singing. As he states on the linear notes "we went out of bounds, beyond limitation, broke barriers, and broke the blues rules in working on this CD". And, from my point of view, they did it, and they did it also very well. The Final result is remarkably good: a very "innovative" traditional blues album. Most of the songs in the album include a powerful horn section and a very good guitar work from John Garcia who worked with his dad for many years. It is really a pleasure to listening to this CD and I really hope that it will have the attention both from public and critics that it deserves. ~M. Bernocchi/amazon.com
