Lightnin’ Hopkins, a true poet who invented most of his lyrics on the spot and never seemed to run out of new ideas, was a blues giant of post-war blues whose style was rooted in pre-war Texas traditions. While he cranked his amp to fierce proportions when performing for his friends in Houston, producers who recorded him usually insisted that he use an acoustic guitar for a more purist approach.

Part of the ultimate audiophile Prestige stereo reissues from Analogue Productions — 25 of the most collectible, rarest, most audiophile-sounding Rudy Van Gelder recordings ever made. All mastered from the original analog master tapes by mastering maestro Kevin Gray. 200-gram LPs pressed at state-of -the-art plant Quality Record Pressings and plated by Gary Salstrom. Deep groove label pressings, tip-on jackets on thick cardboard stock.



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."

 

Sam “Lightnin’” Hopkins, a true poet who invented most of his lyrics on the spot and never seemed to run out of new ideas, was a blues giant of post-war blues whose style was rooted in pre-war Texas traditions. While he cranked up his amp to fierce proportions when performing for his friends at Houston juke joints, producers who recorded him for the so-called folk-blues market usually insisted that he use an acoustic guitar for more “authentic” results. Either way, Lightnin’ seldom made a bad record, and , who did a remarkable job of following his irregular bar patterns and abrupt song endings.
