One Bourbon One Scotch One Beer John Lee Hooker

Song Review By Bill Janovitz

John Lee Hooker – One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer (Official Music Video)

Delaware bar-room kings George Thorogood & the Destroyers did a more coherent — if slightly overlong — version of “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer” for their 1977 self-titled debut album. It is surely an audience favorite for them as well. Thorogood answers his own vocals with blistering and raunchy-toned guitar riffs.

Big Head Todd And The Monsters Version

American rock group Big Head Todd and the Monsters recorded “Boom Boom” for their album Beautiful World . Group bassist Rob Squires described the recording session: “Hooker has just this incredible presence. He walked into the room and literally everyone was intimidated including our producer and the people who work in the studio.” Beginning with the television series debut of NCIS: New Orleans in 2014, a portion of Big Head Todd’s version has been used as the opening theme.

Versin De George Thorogood

«One Scotch, One Bourbon, One Beer»

George Thorogood grabó “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer” para su álbum debut en 1977, George Thorogood and the Destroyers. Su versión es un medley de la canción y otra del propio Hooker, “House Rent Boogie”, que sirve como trasfondo para explicar la situación del cantante. De acuerdo con Hooker, “Él me dijo que quería hacerla y yo le dije, ‘Bien, adelante'”.

“House Rent Boogie” está escrita en primera persona y detalla los eventos que acontecen tras que el cantante pierda su trabajo. Incapaz de pagar el alquiler y puesto en la calle por su arrendadora, intenta obtener alojamiento en casa de un amigo. Mintiendo a su dueña diciéndole que ha conseguido un nuevo trabajo, consigue acceso a su cuarto y saca todas sus pertenencias. Luego acude a una taberna y repetidamente pide las tres bebidas del título para ahogar sus penas, permaneciendo allí hasta las 3 de la madrugada.

Las grabaciones en directo del medley se incluyeron en el disco Live y en el 30th Anniversary Tour: Live . En la actuación de 1986, ya que el personaje está siendo desalojado, se asegura que ha puesto con sus maletas “su colección de discos de John Lee Hooker” antes de dirigirse al bar. Tanto la versión de estudio como la de directo de este tema se ha incluido en muchos recopilatorios de Thorogood.

Versin De John Lee Hooker

One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer

John Lee Hooker grabó la canción como “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer” en 1966. Hooker transformó la canción de Milburn “en un vehículo por sí misma”. Usó la historia y el coro , pero “editó el verso en sus elementos esenciales, llenó los huecos de la narrativa y el diálogo, estableciendo todo el asunto entre un South Side shuffle y un boogie”. Las partes narrativas de Hooker incluían:

And then I sit there, drinkin’, gettin’ high, mellow, knocked out, feelin’ goodAbout that time I looked on the wall, at the old clock on the wallAbout that time it was ten-thirty then, I looked down the bar at the bartender, he said’What do you want, Johnny?’, one bourbon, one scotch, and one beer

La versión de Hooker es un blues a medio tiempo con un número de compases irregulares en tempo de 4/4 con clave de Mi. Fue gabada en Chicago en 1966 con Hooker en guitarra y voz, el pianista Lafayette Leake, el guitarrista Eddie “Guitar” Burns, el batería Fred Below, y un bajista desconocido. La canción fue realizada en 1966 por Hooker para su álbum de ese mismo año, The Real Folk Blues y más tarde grabó gran cantidad de versiones en directo. Una versión en directo con la banda de Muddy Waters se grabó en el Cafe Au Go Go el 30 de agosto de 1966 y fue descrita como “oscura, lenta y patanosa, donde el grado de relación emocional entre Hooker y su banda es nada menos que extraordinaria”.
