Third Man Records Releases Early Recordings: Detroit and Beyond Vol. 1 & 2, Double LP Sets:

Third Man Records ecstatically presents the first re-issue of John Lee Hooker’s seminal and rare Detroit and Beyond recordings on vinyl since their initial release in 1973. These tracks have been heralded by many fans as his best overall collection of recordings as well as his some of his earliest, apart from the 6 recorded by Bernie Besman in 1961.

Split between two double-LP volumes and remastered using original master recordings from Detroit’s legendary United Sound Systems (not even 2 miles from Third Man Detroit!), these collections are a must for blues and music lovers. Volume 1 includes the killer track “Johnny Lee’s Original Boogie (Boogie Chillen).” Available wherever fine records are sold.
