I love the way you walk
I love the way you walk
I'm crazy 'bout your walk
I love the way you walk
You my babe, I got my eyes on you

I like the way you switch
I like the way you switch
I like the way you switch
I like the way you switch
You my babe, I got my eyes on you

You got dimples in your jaw
You got dimples in your jaw
You got dimples in your jaw
You got dimples in your jaw
You my babe, I got my eyes on you

Well I see you every day
Well I see you every day
If you need to look
Well I see you every day
Well I see you every day
You my babe, I got my eyes on you

Who's killing it on harmonica?
Oh ya
I'd give my left n** to have the swagger of John Lee Hooker. I'd have to put an icepack on my junk every night. He was the dude.
J.L. Hooker is good, but not my taste. RP plays him a lot. Less is fine with me.
Mr. Hooker played on the Pier here in Seattle that summer (1997)
It was great to see such a Legend. 

toe tapping stuff. very good indeed.
every onday should start with the Blues!

I didn't 'get' JLH until the collab with Bonnie Rait.  Been loving both ever since.
Neighborhood.  Every day.  Dimples.  Jaws. See.

Perhaps not, but Harold Pinter and Octavio Paz couldn't really get people to get up and boogie.

  Just for fun, translate his lyrics into the Queen's English.  Now sex it up with some bluesy sound.  Not quite the same.  Very white sounding though.


similar motif to baby please dont go
If the previous LZ gets a 7.9, then, since they stole from the black blues artists, JLH should get a 15.8 for this.{#Bananajam}

Chet, Etta, and John Lee for lunch.  Very nice
This is Dancin' Blues !
Good! My taste! :)

Not being your taste doesn't make it bad. You either appreciate blues like this or you don't and that's fine. But bad it is not.
amazing what you can do with 1 chord
I just can't listen to this combination of harmonica and electric guitar without thinking about medicine that, ahem, makes things bigger. 
Pretty awesome that there were blues records this raw being released in the late 90s.
That harmonica is killin'.
Yeah!
Me likey like, very much!
{#Dancingbanana_2} 
Real deal
John Lee Hooker always gets a 10 from me. 
Blues set!!  {#Hearteyes}
just imagine etta & john lee having a kid.........

Sounds like they were having fun, but it's a bit like hearing about a party that you weren't invited to. Doesn't do anything for me, I'm afraid. Noisy, tuneless and almost lyric-less into the bargain.
I just love RP, the music and combinations just build and build into a wonderful experience - RP you are so much appreciated here!

You are not alone, though I don't think I dislike him quite as much as you do!

I am just not in the mood for John Lee Hooker right now, but this caught me ...made me laugh
Well, the music is exciting, I can listen to John Lee, it's fun, he's a blues titan, but with these lyrics, such as they are, he always sounds constipated. It's the soundtrack for a Dulcolax commercial.

"Writing lyrics is for chumps." - J. L. Hooker
 
Indeed. He annoys me with every song sounding like "wooowowowow dodododooodooo".
1974 Twisted Wheel, Manchester UK. You turned me on to the blues John. You da man. RIP

Not only that...he was pretty cool too!
"Writing lyrics is for chumps." - J. L. Hooker
pretty effective too, I heard the opening and thought about the Viagra commercial.
Damn TV commercials: The opening riff from this is used on a series of Viagra ads. You know—for the man who knows how to use bottled water to cool an overheated Camaro; can pull a truck out of a mud hole with a team of horses; can improvise a fix for broken boom rig on a sloop. ED won't slow him down.

Like I said, damn TV commercials.


Doesn't get any better than this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Saw John Lee on PBS a few years back...He was playing with Van Morrison on An Irish hillside...Van Morrion was playing the spoons...Awesome

When you rock as hard as John Lee did...you can wear anything you damn well please!  I saw him do a blistering set at Gillies Night club probably around 1986 in Dayton.   He tore the place up and then sauntered out with a pretty woman under each arm and a sly smile that said, "The blues have been good to me!"

 

The women would be under his arms. . .  :)

Boogie Chillun!
Can't go wrong with this! 10.

I saw John Lee Hooker in a Blues bar in San Francisco with a couple of young ladies. He was just in the audience not playing, dancing with the girls. I walked up to him and said in his ear, "a-Boom, Boom, Boom" and he just answered, "a-How, How, How"
 

I just had to bump this up...rocco, you are a GOD.

Just like your comments. Try to be a little more creative in your criticism.

Yeah, I know he's great....but all sounds the same.

I think they go together well.  And that post below of the crew in the jeep is hysterical
