Absolute Classic of Electric Texas Blues!
Includes Limited Time Download Card!


Recorded in Berkeley, CA and Houston, TX during the winter of 1961-62, Lightnin’ Sam Hopkins features a stripped-down blues trio on some of the most intimate and powerful recordings of Hopkins’ long and storied career. An absolute classic of electric Texas blues reissued on LP in a deluxe tip-on jacket.

"The topics are largely based on ... experiences from the Los Angeles fire which burned in the Hollywood hills while Lightnin' was playing in L.A., to the autobiographical 'Once Was A Gambler.' Perhaps the most spontaneous performance was 'Ice Storm Blues' recorded shortly after his return to Houston when a bitter cold wave hit the South. One of his old favorites, 'Bald Headed Woman', became a new creation, and the delightful piano number 'Do the Boogie', is one of those rare informal bits which usually doesn't get on a record. The brooding 'California Showers' was recorded one rainy afternoon at his cousin's house in Oakland--it had been raining for weeks, it was almost like the weather in Houston--and this number represents that part of Lightnin's personality and artistry which is often covered up in front of an audience--the lonely blues man by himself. Here is Lightnin' Hopkins, perhaps the greatest creatve blues singer the world will ever hear." - Chris Strachwitz, producer
