Lightnin' Hopkins - Lightnin' (The Blues Of Lightnin' Hopkins)
Cornbread Records present a reissue of Lightnin' Hopkins's Lightnin' (The Blues Of Lightnin' Hopkins), originally released in 1960. Featuring, as usual, his brilliant acoustic guitar work, Hopkins is accompanied here by a low key rhythm section of acoustic bass and mostly brushed drumming. The result of this minimal sound is some of the purest and most engaging blues music of the early 1960s. Though Hopkins had been recording blues and R&B for labels like Modern and Aladdin for over a decade, it was not until the folk revival firmly implanted itself into America's psyche that he crossed over to a larger audience. This is one of Hopkins's earliest albums following his breakout onto the national stage and it's one of his finest performances of all-time. 180 gram vinyl.
