A high point on the soundtrack to director Dennis Hopper’s 1990 film The Hot Spot, “Bank Robbery” finds John Lee Hooker collaborating with Miles Davis alongside Taj Mahal, Roy Rogers, Earl Palmer, and Tim Drummond. Scored by Jack Nitzchse, the set is a rolling mix of Delta swagger coupled with Davis’s (always) blue cool.
