Lightnin' Hopkins: Mojo Hand - The Complete Fire Sessions (2-LP)

(Fire Records) 19 tracks, gatefold cover

Remastered from the analog tapes; limited edition with bonus tracks. Lightnin' Hopkins is considered one of the great popular architects of the blues style that later became known as "country blues" and which proved to be a major influence on the later development of rock'n'roll.

"Mojo Hand" was one of Hopkins' signature tunes. He blended his own style with Louisiana Creole and this album, recorded for Fire Records, is particularly interesting because it places Hopkins in a more R&B-heavy environment. This obvious effort to make a hit makes for excellent blues; atmospheric and powerful performances run throughout the album. The Penguin Guide to Blues Recordings wrote that "Lightnin' is focused and businesslike, delivering a strong and varied suite of songs; the bassist and drummer are unobtrusive but very present."

"Lightnin' Hopkins"

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.
