Essential Lightnin'

tanta07

Lightnin' recorded a LOT, and sometimes it's hard to tell the essentials from the more mundane stuff. This set is universally strong material, and showcases what a fantastic blues artist Lightnin' Hopkins was.

Telling You About the Blues, in Texas, Atlanta and Detroit

By John Morthland, Contributor

Let me tell you about Let Me Tell You About the Blues, a series of three-disc packages (several of which are available on eMusic) that attempts to trace the evolution of the music by focusing on geographic areas. Results are mixed, as they almost always are on compilations, in this case due largely to the fact that anything recorded in a specific city or region is defined as belonging to that area. To cite one… more »

Where Did the Blues Begin?

By John Morthland, Contributor

The biggest debate in blues circles these days is, "where did the blues begin?" Ever since the blues revival of the 50s and 60s, the answer has been "the Mississippi Delta." But in recent years, more than a few blues buffs have argued, that while the Delta is where the harshest form of blues indeed gelled, there is very little evidence to suggest that blues started there.

They Say All Music Guide

This is a seven-CD box set that repackages all 11 LPs that Lightnin’ Hopkins recorded for Bluesville and Prestige during the first half of the 1960s: Last Night Blues, Lightnin’, Blues in My Bottle, Walkin’ This Road By Myself, Lightnin’ and Co., Smokes Like Lightning, Hootin’ the Blues, Goin’ Away, Down Home Blues, Soul Blues and My Life in the Blues. The very prolific Hopkins (who was never loyal to any one label) also recorded for Candid, Arhoolie, Fire and Vee Jay during the period! The bulk of My Life in the Blues is actually a lengthy and rather historic interview that Samuel Charters conducted with Hopkins. A special bonus of the set is 13 often exciting tracks from a previously unissued concert at the Swarthmore College Folk Festival. The music throughout the box covers quite a variety of moods and subject matter (with Hopkins being unaccompanied on 34 of the tracks) and definitively sums up the veteran bluesman’s later period. – Scott Yanow
