Eddie Burns & John Lee Hooker became fast friends when they met in 1948, and remained so until Hooker recently passed away. Burns backed Hooker at Chess Records in 1965 playing on Hook's classic "The Real Folk Blues". Burns' plaintive voice, wailing harmonica & sure-handed guitar harkens back to the heyday of Detroit blues a half-century ago. Burns, who like his peers, grew up in Mississippi, and is now the last of Detroit's postwar legends to still live & play in Motor City. This album contains 15 songs, including 12 Eddie Burns originals.
