Live At The Cafe Au Go-Go (And Soledad Prison) is a live compilation album by John Lee Hooker.
The first eight songs are recorded at the Cafe Au Go-Go in Greenwich Village, New York in 1966. The last five songs are from a concert at Soledad Prison in California in 1972.
With some effort you can buy these two recordings separately and you’ll get two extra songs from the Soledad concert with John Lee Hooker Jr. singing.
