Lightnin' Hopkins

Lightnin' Hopkins

Sam Charters recorded legendary, Texas country bluesman Sam "Lightnin'" Hopkins in 1959 before the revival of rural blues or country music. Nonetheless, this recording of Hopkins's first acoustic sessions was met with immediate critical acclaim and soon became recognized as a blues classic. Updated notes by Sam Charters and superbly remastered sound make this an invaluable reissue. "Hopkins's charm and wit shine as brightly as his sensual encyclopedic blues mastery." — Boston Globe
