Limited Edition 180g Forest Green Vinyl LP - 500 copies!
Ranked 71 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 100 Greatest Guitarists!


Lightnin' Hopkins had already recorded dozens, if not hundreds, of sides for various labels by the time he hooked up with Chris Strachwitz in the late '50s, but his recordings for Strachwitz's Arhoolie label are some of the rawest and strongest of his career. Originally released in 1968, this classic slab of Texas blues is reissued here on high quality forest green vinyl with an exact reproduction of the paste-on sleeve - Limited edition of 500 copies.

"Sam Hopkins was a Texas country bluesman of the highest caliber whose career began in the 1920s and stretched all the way into the 1980s. Along the way, Hopkins watched the genre change remarkably, but he never appreciably altered his mournful Lone Star sound, which translated onto both acoustic and electric guitar. Hopkins' nimble dexterity made intricate boogie riffs seem easy, and his fascinating penchant for improvising lyrics to fit whatever situation might arise made him a beloved blues troubadour." - Bill Dahl, allmusic.com

"Perhaps the greatest creative blues singer the world will ever hear." - Chris Strachwitz
