LIGHTNIN' HOPKINS FREE FORM PATTERNS Limited Heavyweight Vinyl LP

Overview:
A long-overdue release on heavyweight vinyl of the Texax blues legend Sam Lightnin' Hopkins' only album for the International Artists label in Houston. Recorded in January 1968 it stands out in Lightnin' discography due to unusual line-up on the sessions, with the veteran bluesman fuelled by homemade moonshine supported by a young hippy rhythm section, comprising Danny Thomas and Duke Davis from the Thirteenth Floor Elevators, both high on acid at the time. This however is no failed hippy/blues amalgam just a straightforward honest blues album with the great man backed by fans, who happened to be members of a psychedelic band. Its significance lies in how the music cut across the generation and racial boundaries within the segregated and repressive atmosphere of late 1960s Texas.
