"John Lee Hooker, The Healer - 180 Gram - CURRENTLY SOLD OUT"

JOHN LEE HOOKER - THE HEALER 180 GRAM CLASSIC RECORDS AUDIOPHILE SEALED LP - THIS 180 GRAM PRESSING WAS PROBABLY CLASSIC RECORDS MOST LIMITED PRESSING EVER. WHEN THE COST OF PETROLEUM WENT UP TO $150 A BARREL THE COST OF PRODUCING VINYL IN 200 GRAM WEIGHTS WAS JUST TOO EXPENSIVE . SO FOR A LIMITED RUN CLASSIC RECORDS WENT TO PRESSING VINYL IN 180 GRAM WEIGHTS. THEN WHEN OIL DROPPED TO $50 A BARREL THE 200 GRAM WEIGHTS CAME BACK. THESE 180 GRAM PRESSINGS IF YOU CAN FIND ONE HAD A TREMENDOUSLY SHORT RUN AND MOST WERE ONLY PRESSED IN A FEW HUNDRED PIECES. A COLLECTORS LIMITED EDITION DREAM. ESPECIALLY SINCE CLASSIC RECORDS NOW HAS MOST OF ITS PREVIOUS TITLES OUT OF PRINT. THIS IS OUR ONE & ONLY COPY AND GONE FOREVER. The Healer was oddly a major mainstream breakthrough for John Lee Hooker. The album was one of the first to feature a wide array of guest stars, including Bonnie Raitt, Keith Richards, Johnnie Johnson and Los Lobos and Carlos Santana. The album immediately captured widespread media attention because of all the superstar musicians involved in its production and has to date been John Lee's most successful release. Recorded in analog and mixed to quarter-inch 15ips analog tape, the sound is better than almost any other Hooker recording. Transferred from the original quarter-inch analog tapes by Bernie Grundman using Classic's "all-tube" cutting system, this version has a warmth and comfort this record has never had. If you're a John Lee Hooker fan, then this is a must! Great sound and classic Hooker guitar and vocal performances. "...a classy affair without flaws, the grittiest of blues legends kickin' the butts of Robert Cray, Los Lobos and a slew of others. Simply a must-have album." - Hi-Fi News -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Track Listings 1. The Healer 2. I'm in the Mood 3. Baby Lee 4. Cuttin' Out 5.
