Allmusic.com gave John Lee Hooker Sings Blues a 4 1/2 star review:

Wandering Blues,” the driving opener throughout which Hooker keeps time loudly with his foot, should give listeners a sense of what to expect from SINGS THE BLUES. These spare, raw recordings, originally made for the King label (the subtitle reads “16 selections-every one a pearl”!), are Hooker at his finest. Hooker’s primitive gutbucket electric guitar is the main ingredient here, and it is his hard-edged boogie playing that fuels the fire.
