Early Recordings: Detroit and Beyond Vol. 2


Third Man Records


Third Man is ecstatic to present the first re-issue of John Lee Hooker’s seminal and rare Detroit and Beyond recordings on vinyl since their initial release in 1973. These tracks have been heralded by many fans as his best overall collection of recordings as well as his some of his earliest, apart from the 6 recorded by Bernie Besman in 1961. Split between two double-LP volumes and remastered using original master recordings from Detroit’s legendary United Sound Systems (not even 2 miles from Third Man Detroit!), these collections are a must for blues and music lovers. Volume 1 includes the killer track “Johnny Lee’s Original Boogie (Boogie Chillen).” Black vinyl available everywhere. Limited edition available at Third Man Records’ Nashville and Detroit storefronts.
