Blues Album Released On180g Vinyl!

Last Night Blues by Lightnin' Hopkins was originally released in 1961. Joined by Sonny Terry this is a stripped down, soulful release with Sonny delivering instinctive accompaniment to Hopkins' fluid finger picking guitar and gritty vocals. Reissued on 180 gram vinyl on a tip on sleeve with a paper and poly lined inner sleeve.

"Outside of Blind Lemon Jefferson, Lightnin' Hopkins may be Texas's most distinctive and influential blues export. His easy, fluid fingerpicking and witty, extemporaneous storytelling are always a delight, and his performances on Last Night Blues are no exception. The album is spare and acoustic, with Hopkins's voice and guitar accompanied by minimal percussion and Sonny Terry's harmonica. Terry's contributions really add a lot to these tunes, threading a high, lonesome whine on the downtempo tunes and a chugging, propulsive shuffle on the faster ones. Hopkins is, of course, one of the kings of the blues boogie, but he's equally compelling on the slow blues, and he never missteps throughout this fine set. All told, this dynamite disc represents what the blues should be: stripped-down, soulful, and full of truth." - allmusic.com
