John Lee Hooker: Mr. Lucky (1991)

john lee hooker mr. lucky

By Scott Goldfine

Living blues legend John Lee Hooker has crafted “Mr. Lucky,” the successor to last year’s Grammy Award-winning “The Healer.” This is essentially an all-star jam session that includes Albert Collins, Van Morrison, Carlos Santana, Robert Cray, Johnny Winter and Keith Richards.

While Hooker is frequently overshadowed by his heavyweight sidemen, spirited playing and good material win out.
