Reviews:

''Hooker 'N Heat'' is a double album released by blues-rock band Canned Heat and blues legend John Lee Hooker in early 1971. The sessions were the last with harmonicist, guitarist and songwriter Alan Wilson, who died in . The cover photo was taken after his death, but a picture of him can be seen on the wall behind John Lee Hooker.

It was the first of Hooker's albums to chart, reaching number 78 in the Billboard charts. - Wikipedia
