Prestige Stereo Reissue Series from Analogue Productions: Cut from the Original Analog Master Tapes by Kevin Gray
For this 1963 Prestige Bluesville release, Lightnin' Hopkins is paired with bassist Leonard Gaskin and drummmer Herb Lovelle, who not only offer up a very sympathetic backing for his bare bones signature guitar style and instinctual rhythms, but provide some essential muscle as well along the way. The solid 8-song set consists of all Hopkins originals and finds the blues legend in fine form throughout, never more so than on the cuts "Stranger Here" and "You Better Stop Her."
Part of the ultimate audiophile Prestige stereo reissue series from Analogue Productions featuring 25 of the most collectible, rarest, most audiophile-sounding Rudy Van Gelder recordings ever made! All titles will be mastered from the original analog master tapes by Kevin Gray and will be issued on both Hybrid SACD and 200g LP.
The 200g LPs will be cut at 33 1/3 speed vinyl at Acoustic Sounds' state-of-the-art pressing plant, Quality Record Pressings, plated by Gary Salstrom. Deep groove label pressings, tip-on jackets on thick cardboard stock.
