2017 marks what would have been John Lee Hooker’s 100th birthday, and Concord are pleased to announce this collection to celebrate the legendary bluesman in true style. 100 tracks on 5 CDs span Hooker’s career: from his iconic hits, to rare tracks, live recordings plus previously unreleased material. Presented in a book format, the package includes a treasure trove of photos, plus new liner notes by John Lee Hooker historian Jas Obrecht, as well as by the artist’s longtime manager Mike Kappus.

Known to music fans around the world as the “King of the Boogie,” John Lee Hooker endures as one of the true superstars of the blues genre. His work is widely recognized for its impact on modern music – his simple, yet deeply effective songs transcend borders and languages around the globe. Each decade of Hooker’s long career brought a new generation of fans and fresh opportunities for the ever-evolving artist, and he regularly toured and recorded up until his passing in 2001. The music of John Lee Hooker can regularly be heard in TV shows, commercials and films, and many of his tracks have also found a second life sampled in new songs.
