John Lee Hooker – It Serve You Right To Suffer

Newly repressed at 45 RPM by Quality Record Pressings.

This recording was originally mastered at the former AcousTech Mastering facility and the sound is fantastic.

John Lee Hooker

 John Lee Hooker himself did not know his exact date of birth.

If he hadn’t died at around the age of 80, this ageless musician would still be easily pulling the next generation to his gigs.

Hooker remains a phenomenon, a mysterious figure of black rhythm and blues, a charismatic king who reigns supreme in rock ‘n’ roll’s Hall of Fame.

John W. Peters described his music as a synthesis of scorching emotional ardour, unrelenting rhythmic intensity, and original poetry of a highly personal character.

Anyone hearing him for the first time may well be startled at the unfiltered passion and power of his music.

And another surprise is in store for those who compare Hooker’s late recordings with those made in the Sixties.

His unmistakable, raw voice has fully matured, but his incantory style of singing appears markedly finer and more flexible.

And then there is the perfect gem of a rhythm group whose sinewy sounds fill the grooves with merciless gravitational force. It’s enough to make your spine tingle!

Analogue Productions

It was in 1992 that Acoustic Sounds owner Chad Kassem reissued his first Analogue Productions title, Virgil Thompson’s The Plow That Broke The Plains, originally on Vanguard.

Analogue Productions began as a vehicle for Kassem to license his favorite all-time recordings and reissue them as remastered and as a superior version to the original release.

Since its inception AP has reissued hundreds of titles, ranging from classical to folk, pop, rock, blues and jazz.

Included in the many highlights of Analogue Productions’ history are the Fantasy 45 Jazz Reissues, the Blue Note Reissues, and premium box sets of the music of such legendary acts as The Doors, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Nat “King” Cole and Norah Jones.

True to its name, Analogue Productions works with the original analogue master tapes – more than any other reissue label! The result is superior sound – richer, warmer and more lifelike, than digital.
