Lightnin' Hopkins: Lightnin' And The Blues (LP,180g Vinyl)

Video von Lightnin' Hopkins - Lightnin' And The Blues (LP,180g Vinyl)

(Be! Sharp) 12 tracks - Re-issue of the original 1960 'Herald' LP album! Comes in a thick cardborad sleeve

One day the phone rang - a collect call from Texas. The voice on the other end belonged to Sam 'Lightnin'  Hopkins. 'Man, I wrote a mess o' new tunes for you.' Reservations were made that afternoon and the ensuing plane trip to Houston (where Lightnin' was currently living) was filled with anxiety for us because here was an opportunity to record the last of the great blues singers. Nothing much is known about Sam Hopkins and he is not one to venture any information. He did, however, tell us that the greatest influence in his life was one Blind Lemon. He encouraged Lightnin' to tell his story on his guitar as well as with words. Lightnin's intense and painful vocal style is a result of his life in the poor farm country of central Texas. This, and his evasive qualities, are fast making him a legend. Although Lightnin' has recorded for many different labels, we believe this collection of songs captures him at his best and could easily be subtitled, ' The Best Of Lightnin' Hopkins' without fear of contradiction. The session and two bottles of gin were finished and Lightnin' just shuffled away counting his money. We have not seen or heard from him since, but everytime the phone rings we somehow hope we'll hear his voice sayin', 'Man, I wrote a mess o' new tunes for you.'

Artist description "Hopkins, Lightnin'"

Lightnin' Hopkins

Lightnin' Hopkins is many people's idea of what a blues-singer should be : an endlessly inventive folk-poet, whose imagination is touched by almost everything but whose sing-ing and playing express nothing but the blues. And this, despite nearly 30 years of performing and recording, and all the pressures that might have made him something else, he unswervingly has been. But he has not, outside his own com-munity, been very obviously influential on either American or British rock; his blues, sung by others, are not self-sustaining, as many of the Chicagoans' are.

 

His early recordings, in the Forties and Fifties, were characterised by thunderous amplification - as any number of reissues demonstrate - but his first ventures into a different market, with acoustic guitar, compensate in subtlety for what they lose in force (e.g. the Folkways and some Bluesville albums). Later sessions placed him with accompanying groups, rarely successfully, though his album for Jewel is an exception.

Through all these records he balances slow blues with vivid boogies, occasionally leaving his guitar to essay an idiosyncratic piano style. Born in Centerville, Texas, in 1912, he spent most of his life in Houston, and his refusal to extract himself from that milieu is the chief reason for his undiminished authenticity as an observer, through the blues, of black life.
