Hooker 'N Heat

Sealed - Brand new 180 gram limited edition double album housed in a gatefold from Pure Pleasure.

Hooker 'n Heat is a double album released by blues legend John Lee Hooker  and blues-rock band Canned Heat in early 1971. It was the last studio album to feature harmonica player, guitarist and songwriter Alan Wilson, who died in September 1970 (1970-09) from a drug overdose. The photo on the album cover was taken after Wilson's death, but his picture can be seen in a frame on the wall behind John Lee Hooker. Guitarist Henry Vestine was also missing from the photo session. The person standing in front of the window, filling in for Henry, is the band's manager, Skip Taylor.[citation needed] Careful examination of the photo reveals that Henry's face was later added by the art department.

It was the first of Hooker's albums to chart, reaching number 78 in the Billboard charts.
