Blues Is the Healer is a ten-CD box set of 149 songs from the early years of blues legend John Lee Hooker's repertory, released in 2005 by the German label Membran. According to one reviewer, "the first 8 discs are early solo Hooker with the occasional backing guitar or piano. Disc 9 sounds like Veejay recordings and the 10th is a live concert".[1]
