John Lee Hooker aka John Lee Booker Recorded for DeLuxe Records – Billboard (1954)

 

 

The music business: Even while John Lee Hooker was on contract and recording for Chess Records in March of 1954, he was also making cash on the side recording for Henry Stone’s DeLuxe label as John Lee Booker. Thus were born the 78rpm classics, “Real, Real Gone,” and “My Baby Don’t Love Me.” Check out the reviews of these cuts in Billboard, back then known as “The Amusement Industry’s Leading Newsweekly.”
