A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.
- KILLER sound from start to finish with both sides earning Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound or very close to it
- Hooker’s albums are surprisingly good sounding – they have the open, immediate, dynamic qualities of a live-in-the-studio session – my understanding is that most of them are recorded precisely that way
- These sides are doing it right – they’re big, rich and Tubey Magical, with wonderfully present vocals and huge amounts of energy
- Free Beer And Chicken is one of the better sounding John Lee Hooker records we’ve ever played lately – an interesting lineup of guests too, including the one and only Mr. Joe Cocker!
