John Lee Hooker - The Best of Friends

The Best Of Friends


Featuring:
Charles Brown - Eric Clapton - Robert Cray
Ben Harper - Booker T jones - Los Lobos
Van Morrison - Charlie Musselwhite-Bonnie Raitt
Carlos Santana - Ike Turner - Jimmie Vaughan


Most times when a bluesman makes an album packed with superstar guests, it means that the music's going to take a beating. (For proof, hear B.B. King's 1997 Deuces Wild.) These 13 tunes are an exception. Ten are collected from previous CDs, so they represent the cream of Hooker's collaborations. His "Baby Lee" with Robert Cray is a joy. So is "I'm in the Mood", where Hooker hams it up with Bonnie Raitt. Oddly, he even fits into Santana's Latin groove on "The Healer". This album's three brand-new pairings with famous guitarists are mixed. Eric Clapton adds hot sauce to Hooker's sassy classic "Boogiemore… Chillen". and Ben Harper's wah- wah and slide guitar gives "Burnin' Hell" a psychedelic sizzle. However, Ry Cooder's turn on "Big Legs Tight Skirt" is atypically anonymous.
