Recorded at the Rising Sun Celebrity Jazz Club in Montreal, Quebec, on May 5, 1977, Black Night Is Falling findsJohn Lee Hookerin fine voice and backed by a driving band composed ofJohn Garciaon guitar,Steve Joneson bass, andLarry "Wild Man" Martinon drums, with the end result being an excellent example of liveHookerat his best. Highlights include impressive romps through two ofHooker's signature tunes, "Boom Boom," which simply blazes with raw energy here, and "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer," which is delivered as a wonderfully paced barroom cautionary tale. This is what the liveHookersounded like with a sympathetic band behind him, a band that luckily wasn't afraid to push him a little.

A1 Chicken and Gravy, A2 Serves Me Right to Suffer, A3 Boom Boom, B1 Black Night, B2 One Scotch, One Bourbon, One Beer, B3 One Room Country Shack
