John Lee Hooker was absolutely one of the most prolific and rhythmic pioneers of the blues scene for most of his life. Recording his first 78’s in the forties and rapidly becoming one of the most in demand bluesmen of his time, Hooker was truly an American legend of our modern times.

With hundreds of songs and an untold amount of recordings and live performances throughout his lifetime, John Lee Hooker was also one of the most revered and interpreted songwriters. Major recording acts like Canned Heat, Johnny Winter, Van Morrison, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, George Thorogood were all champions of this sorely missed icon.

Fifty years ago, ATCO Records released one of the most important albums of his career with Don’t Turn Me From Your Door - John Lee Hooker Sings His Blues. The dozen gems that make up this rural blues event would go on to become some of his most famous tunes including the title track which was covered by numerous rock and blues artists over the years like Savoy Brown and the terrific blues wailing of Drifting Blues, the rockin’ Real Real Gone and of course another brilliant standard with My Baby Don’t Love Me.

The award winning giant of the blues continues with even more hard rockin’ blues like Guitar Lovin’ Man, Wobbling Baby and his fan favorite Stuttering Blues.

Friday Music is no stranger to the artistry of the late great John Lee Hooker, and it is with much honor to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl 50th Anniversary release of his masterpiece Don’t Turn Me From Your Door.

Impeccably mastered by Joe “Bluesman” Reagoso (John Lee Hooker/Canned Heat/Johnny Winter) from the original ATCO Records tapes, John Lee Hooker’s classic Don’t Turn Me From Your Door will truly be one of the most anticipated blues releases of the year.

To make your limited edition listening experience all the more entertaining, we are also including the very rare album cover graphics for the first time in fifty years, which will truly enhance the wonderful blues within by the legendary John Lee Hooker.
