John Lee Hooker appeared at the last days of his career with The Healer back in 1989 with a groundbreaking album that brought back classical Mississippi delta blues to a lot of people who forgot where many of popular music got its influence from. An album full with collaborations with a lot of different popular musicians made this album one of the best and well known records of this year. I didn't listen to this records for ages but it is still a record you ought to listen to from time to time even if you are not deeply into blues. The way he plays his guitar with a few licks is simply unbelievable and none could do it better than the master himself. What Hooker did in the late days of his musical career was that important for generations who didn't knew where many of the music came from.
