Made in one session on February 9, 1960 at Reeves Sound Studio in New York City, it was produced by Orrin Keepnews and features part of the rhythm section from saxophonist CannonballAdderley’s group: bassist Sam Jones and drummer Louis Hayes. This session came at a time when Hooker was signed to Vee-Jay. The last thing Keepnews wanted to do was emulate Hooker’s electric-oriented, very amplified Vee- Jay output, which fared well among rock and R&B audiences. Keepnews had an acoustic country blues vision for the bluesman, and "That’s My Story" favors a raw, stripped-down, bare-bones approach – no electric guitar, no distortion, no singles aimed at rock & rollers.
