(2-CD set) Almost universally referred to as the post-war King Of Texas Blues, Lightnin Hopkins enjoyed a virtually continuous recording career from his first visit to a recording studio in 1946 until his death in 1982. With hundreds of recordings made for dozens of record labels, Lightnin remains one of the most prolific (and popular) of all blues artists, as the numerous CD reissues of his recordings demonstrate. In a world of several hundred Lightnin Hopkins compilations, mostly of dubious quality, this is the definitive overview of his long career and is certain to prove essential to die-hard Hopkins collectors and novice blues buyers alike.
