Hopkins, Lightnin’ – “Texas Blues Man” – [Arhoolie Records Inc.]

Ten outstanding tracks from Lightning Hopkins, none of which are already in the KFJC library. Hopkins’ sweet and thick as honey voice is in fine form, as is his excellent guitar work (track 2 shows this off a bit). Beautifully recorded by Arhoolie Records founder Chris Strachwitz in 1967 in Houston, Texas. Real blues (example: Slavery), not just the jokey stuff. Recommended!!!
