Lightnin' Hopkins Sings The Blues Limited Vinyl LP

Legendary Houston bluesman, Sam Lightnin' Hopkins was an icon of American music. This CD 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, produced the hit, Katie May,right out of the gate. Hopkins scored national R&B hits for Aladdin with his "Shotgun Blues," "Short Haired Woman" -essential, evocative Texas blues rooted in a tradition going back to Blind Lemon Jefferson and Blind Willie Johnson.
