John Lee Hooker Cook with the Hook MVD5302D

“This DVD is both historically important and musically rewarding” – Musoscribe

“John Lee Hooker was one of the most prolific of bluesmen, but video footage of him is far rarer than his audio recordings, and since his death in 2001 it has become even more valuable” – Norman Darwen

“It’s hard not to recommend the recently released 1974 John Lee Hooker concert film Cook With The Hook on the music alone.” – Verbicide

On Saturday, July 6, 1974, Mississippi-Delta bluesman John Lee Hooker was a star attraction at an all-day festival attended by 6,000 people. The event in the town of Gardner Massachusetts was called “Down in the Dumps,” a musical event held in the city landfill area.

Hooker’s performance was captured on a three camera shoot and broadcast on cable television in local cities and towns.

“This black and white footage of a performance by blues legend John Lee Hooker is not exactly of terrific quality – but it’s certainly great that a valuable fragment of his long career has been preserved” – Beat Magazine
