“That's My Story is a studio album by American blues musician John Lee Hooker, released in 1960 on Riverside Records. The album was recorded in one session on February 9, 1960 at Reeves Sound Studio in New York City. It was produced by Orrin Keepnews and features the rhythm section from saxophonist Cannonball Adderley's group, which included bassist Sam Jones and drummer Louis Hayes.

By the time of That's My Story's release, Hooker's delta-form of playing had influenced and become part of the "folk boom". Mojo cited the album as the point when Hooker "developed the more ruminative side of his work”.” - Wiki

“While many of his electric recordings are stunning, he is also well served by the rawness that Keepnews goes for on That's My Story. From the sobering "Gonna Use My Rod" (which finds Hooker warning that he will shoot anyone who fools around with his wife) to the gospel-themed "One of These Days," Hooker's performances are often compelling.” - AllMusic
