John Lee Hooker and Ry Cooder Full Live Concert from 1992 — Video

When John Lee Hooker released his album The Healer in 1989, it finally gave the great bluesman the well-deserved commercial success that allowed him to live out his final years in comfort. The album featured collaborations with Bonnie Raitt, Charlie Musselwhite, Los Lobos and Carlos Santana, among others.

So when it came time to record the follow-up Mr. Lucky, Ry Cooder stepped in as co-producer with the aim of following the same successful formula by assembling a diverse range of notable guest and session musicians, including Keith Richards and Johnny Winter.

Around that same time, Hooker and Cooder played a handful of shows together performing a mix old classics and new offerings from the latest record. In he clip below you can see one of those appearances in full.

Recorded at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California in 1992. The performance was part of the All Our Colors – The Good Road Concert, a benefit show to help Native American Indians. That day the pair teamed up to play some great renditions of; “Lonely Man”, “Serves Me Right To Suffer”, “Hobo Blues” and “Crawlin’ King Snake”.
