Earl Zebedee Hooker (January 15, 1930 – April 21, 1970) was a Chicago blues guitarist known for his slide guitar playing. Considered a "musician's musician", he performed with blues artists such as Sonny Boy Williamson II, Junior Wells, and John Lee Hooker and fronted his own bands. An early player of the electric guitar, Hooker was influenced by the modern urban styles of T-Bone Walker and Robert Nighthawk. He recorded several singles and albums as a bandleader and with other well-known artists

Never much of a singer, Earl Hooker 's biting slide guitar tone and on-stage flamboyance made him the consummate showman, while his versatility kept him in demand as a sideman. An Introduction to Earl Hooker is a brief set (even with four bonus tracks it struggles to get past 35 minutes in length) which collects early-'60s tracks Hooker cut with producer Mel London 's Age, Chief, and Mel-Lon imprints.

All who heard him agree: Earl Hooker was one of the baddest blues guitarists to ever stalk the streets of Chicago. Here are 14 of his prime Age and Chief cuts: Rockin' Wild; Blue Guitar; Swear to Tell the Truth; How Long Can This Go on ; two with Junior Wells; one with Magic Sam, and more! Track Listings. Now at 56, I've "rediscovered" Earl Hooker and am simply amazed at what an entertaining and versatile guitarist he is. As an aspiring blues guitarist myself, the first thing I noticed is what I can only call masterful articulation. I suspect playing slide guitar really freed up his expression and he brought that to his regular playing. Or maybe it was the other way around - who knows? Regardless, this album shows off the talents of a wonderful and distinctive artist.

Earl Hooker played some wonderful slide-guitar on the Chicago club scene in the 60s, mastering new devices like the twin-neck guitar and wah-wah with ease. Earl Zebedee Hooker was born in rural Mississippi but the family moved to Chicago when he was young. Growing up on the South-side in the 30s, Earl was surrounded by the Blues, and when his cousin John Lee came to town as an up-and-coming player and they heard about T-Bone Walker playing at the Rhumboogie Club, the die was cast.
