Music Industry News - as it happens

Recording has started in London, England, and in the US on Volume I of an as yet un-named, but star-packed, album celebrating John Lee Hooker, the blues and boogie legend who died in June this year.

Hooker was born in 1917 to a family of Mississippi sharecroppers and as a teenager, ran off to Memphis. He eventually settled in Detroit in the 40s, working in an auto factory by day and playing and singing the blues by night. In 1948, he recorded "Boogie Chillen," which rose to # 1 on the 1948 R&B charts. Hooker recorded for many labels, using aliases such as John Lee Cooker, Delta John and the Boogie Man.

Blue Storm Music says several tracks have already been completed under Cream lyricist Pete Brown; that Jeff Beck has finished versions of the Hooker arrangement "Will The Circle Be Unbroken" joined by a full gospel choir and, and "Hobo Blues" with Earl Green, Richard Bailey, Dave "Munch" Moore and David Hadley.

Another completed session is with keyboardist/vocalist Gary Brooker of Procol Harum fame, guitarist Andy Fairweather-Low, drummer Henry Spinetti and bassist Matt Peg on "Baby Le" and "Little Wheel." The remaining London sessions are still being finalized with other artists.

In the US, LLC - Leo Lyons and Ric Lee of Ten Years After and guitar wizard/vocalist Vince Converse - has completed "Jesse James". Other US sessions include performances from George Thorogood, Little Feat, a representation from The Grateful Dead and a track from Hooker's daughter Zakiya Hooker and her band Bluz 4 U. Zakiya will also be contributing liner notes and family photos.
