Numbered, Limited Edition of 500 Copies on Clear Vinyl!

Reissue, originally released in 1961. Texan country blues kingpin Lightnin' Hopkins was rated one of the top 100 guitarists of all time by Billboard and was a notable influence on Stevie Ray Vaughan, among others. Recordings for Aladdin and Gold Star cemented his reputation, and after performing at Carnegie Hall with Pete Seeger and Joan Baez, "Mojo Hand" was a breakthrough hit. The superb 1961 LP Lightnin' (The Blues of Lightnin' Hopkins) benefits from the understated presence of King Curtis's drummer, Belton Evans, and jazz bassist Leonard Gaskin, placing Hopkins' guitar licks and raspy voice at center stage, playfully relating heartbreak and woe. Clear vinyl.
