Lightnin’ Sam Hopkins stands alone. The master of spontaneous musical combustion, Hopkins’ magnicent guitar idiosyncrasies and deeply expressive vocals qualify him as on the most arresting and irresistible practi- tioners in all of the blues. These 30 tracks, comprising the origi- nal Lightnin’ & the Blues LP and additional songs he cut for Herald Records in April 1954, qualify as the ultimate showcase for Hopkins’ prodi- gious blues power. Lightnin’ didn’t just sing the blues, he embodied them; his mesmerizing electric guitar doesn’t just walk and talk it howls, growls and testies, coiling up and striking out with stinging precision.
