    Hooker was too singular of a talent to really gel with a band, IMO. He made some excellent albums with bands behind him, but for me his best work was done on his own, whether it was done electrically or acoustically. The Country Blues of John Lee Hooker and It Serve You Right to Suffer are two of my very favorites. JLH was one of the greatest of all bluesmen.
