A blues tune I can get into. Not the same ol' let's repeat the same phrase 3-4 times and then noodle about on the guitar.
This ones got the stuff I like, and is an obvious influencer on a number of latter songs by other artists, including George Thoroghgood, Hank Williams Jr, and ZZ Top.

Based on that earlier Willie Dixon comment I heard an old quote that went " the Blues had a baby and they called it Rockin' Roll". I always thought that pretty well summed it up.

Stunning ignorance and shows a complete lack of insight into the music you listen to.  From blues to rhythm & blues from which rock and roll was spawned which led to all varieties of modern guitar/bass/drums/piano/horns music of today.

Check the derivatives of rhythm & blues which itself was a derivative of the blues...

I understand if anybody doesn't care for The Blues, even if they like rock, pop, or whatever other boogie children The Blues helped spawn. I like JLH's stuff and it's fun to see how The Blues helped shape the sound of so many bands.

I'd heard that The Blues inspired Rock, but I heard Rock before I heard The Blues, so it feels a bit like musical archaeology to listen to The Blues.

What surprised me most though was that even the best recordings, studio or live, didn't adequately capture the spirit of a live blues show.

Of the concerts or shows I've witnessed, about half were disappointing live compared to the studio, and a very small percentage were better live. With Rock, it was a rare band that could compare live to their studio work. That was never the case with the blues. With The Blues there's an energy and an experience live that the recorded work, even the very good recorded work, somehow misses.

The State of Michigan and the City of Detroit ripped up Hastings Street and tore down Henry's Swing Club some 60 years ago to make way for I-375, a freeway spur that runs into the east side of downtown Detroit. Now the city is thinking about taking out the freeway and replacing it with a surface boulevard.

That must have a been a great concert...I envy you. 

This is not a great version...at all.    {#No}  I think John was just messin' around in his later years with this. Which is fine but it just doesn't pop.

"Henry's Swing Club" and "Hastings Street" are references to locations in Detroit's Black Bottom. See http://www.motorcities.org/Story/Detroits+Black+Bottom+and+Paradise+Valley-37.html John Lee Hooker worked in Detroit in the 1940's.

Actually, I was exposed to some of "the best" blues music in Chicago quite a bit in my swashbuckling days, circa 1994.   I remember many a long night with a fake smile on my face.... That marble just ain't finding the hole....

Bringing on John Lee Hooker's "HEAVY" cool soul is a bit tough (hammer) on Jagger's Wandering Spirit, but as John Lee sings "nobody do the boogie like the boogie-man". That is why this gets a Godlike rating, much thanks.
