Lightnin' Hopkins: Mojo Hand (LP, colored Vinyl, Ltd.)

(Cleopatra) 15 tracks, gatefold cover, colored vinyl in gold, limited edition.

This essential LP presents one of Lightnin' Hopkins' best albums, Mojo Hand, originally released in 1962 on Bobby Robinson's Fire Records label. (The LP was renamed Lightnin Hopkins just two years later for Sphere Sound's reissue, with a different cover sleeve). Mojo Hand is considered one of the true masterpieces from Hopkins' catalog. The material ranges from classic blues to R & B flavored numbers. There is even a charming Christmas blues, entitled Santa. These are moody and powerful performances. Despite the diversity, the album is remarkably cohesive because Hopkins' fusion of styles can be heard in every song.

The LP's title track, originally released as a single, has become a signature of the artist. Have You Ever Loved a Woman showcases Hopkins on piano, while Glory Bee features Hopkins' famous guitar playing. Sometimes She Will showcases his instantly recognizable guitar and distinct vocals. Awful Dreams is notable for its apocalyptic lyrics. The album is an excellent example of the Texas blues idiom.

In addition to the original longplay, this Vinyl Lovers collector's edition includes 2 bonus tracks from the same period: 'Black Cadillac' and Good Morning Little School Girl. All of these songs give a solid and revealing portrait of Lightnin' Hopkins genius as well as a testament to his rightful place in the blues pantheon.

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.
