Format: Audio CD
This review is for the 1990 CD release on Prestige Bluesville, catalogue number OBCCD 506-2 (BV 1045). With 11 songs recorded in the summer of 1961, the total running time of the disc is slightly over 41 minutes.

Featuring just Lightnin' Hopkins and his acoustic guitar, the first thing worthy of mention is the sound quality. It is excellent, as if it were recorded only yesterday. Judged on its own merits, without having heard the original vinyl release from 1961, I'd say this seems to be a relatively faithful transfer from the original tapes.

Occasionally during louder passages the guitar does distort slighty, but that's most likely down to the microphone being positioned too close and overloading a little. Hopkins wasn't a man of attempting multiple takes or returning to make corrections. Recording was often a one-shot deal with him, so a tiny flaw of that nature certainly wouldn't have been of concern at the time. And it really shouldn't be of concern to modern listeners as it is only occasional.

Despite the good sound quality, one thing which may bother the more puritanically-minded Blues fan is the mix. It's stereo. This means Hopkins' voice is in one speaker, his guitar in the other. I know a lot of fans prefer a mono mix in this type of one-man situation, but this album was never released in mono. So for those who would complain, it's stereo or nothing.

Another thing to mention concerning the mix; listening through headphones the guitar occasionally pans to the centre for a few seconds before returning to the side. This sounds like a mixing choice rather than a mastering flaw because I noticed it only happening at a couple of brief points where Hopkins wasn't singing, as if the intention was to to allow the single guitar to fill out both speakers.
