Lightnin' Hopkins Sings The Blues on LP

Legendary Houston bluesman, Sam Lightnin' Hopkins was an icon of American music. This LP compiles the crème of his 1946-1948 recordings for the LA-based Aladdin Record company – remarkable solitary blues recorded in the fully-formed individual style on which he would build a life-long career. Lightnin's guitar style was compelling – old, yet new. His ad-libbed chord changes and stop-time rhythms scored a number of national R&B hits for Aladdin, many gathered here. Lightnin' Hopkins Sings The Blues is essential, evocative Texas blues rooted in a tradition going back to Blind Lemon Jefferson and Blind Willie Johnson.
