O’s Notes: Hooker was one of the first blues players to perform on the West Coast. This 1962 session was recorded live at San Francisco’s Sugar Hill club during the folk-blues movement. He appealed to this audience as a one-man band singing and playing an acoustic guitar. He brought some of the Mississippi blues to the crowd with classic songs like “Taxi Driver” and “Crawlin’ King Snake”.
