City Slang: New John Lee Hooker DVD

A new John Lee Hooker DVD, Cook With the Hook: Live 1974, will be released on June 19.

"On Saturday, July 6, 1974, Mississippi-Delta bluesman John Lee Hooker was one of the star attractions at an all-day festival attended by 6,000 people. The event in the town of Gardner Massachusetts was called "Down in the Dumps" perhaps the first in what was proposed as a series of musical events to be held in the city landfill area. Luckily, very luckily, Hooker's performance was captured on a three camera shoot and broadcast on cable television in local cities and towns."

The track listing is as follows:  "It Serves You Right to Suffer", "Sweet Sweet Thing", "Boom Boom", "Whiskey & Women", "Boogie", Encore/Medley.
