John Lee Hooker Ft Santana - The Healer.mp3

In the beginning was a stomping right foot, accompanied by a distorted electric guitar. A fast, simple rhythm that strikes a bridge from Africa to Mississippi, from the rainforest to the cotton fields, from prehistory WHAM! straight into the 20th century. Then the voice, deep as the darkness at the center of the earth; John Lee raps, 35 years before anyone would think about calling it that. And then the break: the guitar stops (the foot keeps stomping, relentlessly) and *twang* *twang* *twang* *twang* braaaaaang! Dead silence. Boogie Chillun! and the rhythm starts over again and each stomp, each bass note from the worn guitar is a hammer stroke on the chisel that is hewing rock’n’roll out of the ancient rock.
