Which John Lee Hooker album should I buy ?
Ok so I recently started to listen to Delta Blues, Electric Blues, etc. I once heard some song of John Lee Hooker and I like him a lot. I was shocked to see his discography when I wanted to buy an album from him... Any suggestion ?

Start with "The Healer"
But I have to tell you, the best John Lee Hooker stuff for me always seems to be some fly-by-night company that got a hold of old masters and released some out-takes CDs for cheap and sell them at highway rest stops in the bargin rack.
Also, have a look for John Lee Hooker's stuff on youtube - there is a good amount and some of it you will really dig!
