Early Performances From A Blues Master On Vinyl LP!

The great Texas bluesman Lightnin' Hopkins (1912-1982) recorded these fabulous tracks for Aladdin in Los Angeles and Houston between 1946-1948. These early performances are considered as seminal works not only for Hopkins's career but also for the whole history of country blues. Here, Lightnin' is mostly alone with his guitar, except on some tracks where he is joined by pianist Wilson "Thunder" Smith or some unknown drummer. Hopkins's intense guitar and deep voice and lyrics are at the very center of this unprecedented music. In one word: A masterpiece!
