5.0 out of 5 stars Go Head On Lightnin 16 Oct 2004
The DVD format has helped to bring us some fine collections of blues performers from the past. This collection of performances by Lightnin' Hopkins is in my opinion is one of the finest. I have seen numerous TV clips of blues artists all of which insist on having some kind of commentary over the the clips, what I want is a straight forward clip of the artist performing without the aid of some annoying voiceover telling me how great the film clip is, I could judge for myself how great it was if only I could hear it.The real beauty of this compilation is that all you get is the artist filmed performing so if annoying voice overs are your thing look elsewhere. In total there are 24 songs featured on this disc.Included are clips from 1960 of Lightnin performing on the streets of Houston, the cream of this compilation however are the eight song set Lightnin recorded for the 1970 PBS show Boboquivari, this intimate set is delivered in the now familiar unplugged format. Although I would class myself as a huge Lightnin Hopkins fan I believe this DVD is more than a collection of clips which are only of interest to hard corps blues fans. Come and see where bands like the Black keys and the White Stripes got their insperation. Seeing is believing.

I am a big Lightnin Hopkins fan and this DVD has almost been warn out by my player! There is footage of him on here you will find nowhere else including two sets set in colour. I urge anyone that loves music to buy this cos ol' Lightnin is a great musician and performer with true charisma.

2.0 out of 5 stars A disappointment! 13 Mar 2012
By jelly 1960 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Of course we must be extremely grateful that there is any live footage of these great blues masters, but it has to be said that this DVD was rather disappointing. It comprises a collection of material from his later years by when he was "discovered" by the white college and festival crowd. His material is very much tailored to that audience and lacks the raw intensity of his earlier recordings. If you want to see Lightnin' in action then I guess that this will be as good as you can get, but I'd rather sit back and listen to his 1947/8 material (try King of Dowling St LP, released in 1972) and remind myself of just how good LH was in his prime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lightning Rod 6 May 2007
By Kevin W. Burdeshaw - Published on Amazon.com
This is an excellent concert, that definitely needed to be preserved for the ages. Mr. Hopkins has been a big influence on Rock and Roll, and many other genres of music in this and the last century. I have and will continue to enjoy listening for hours and hours to this excellent piece of musical work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lightnin' Hopkins: Rare Performances 1960-1970 5 Dec 2011
By Ken - Published on Amazon.com

A very fine DVD of Lightnin' in various concert settings. You'll see some of these Lightnin' clips on some of the instruction material DVD's by Stefan Grossman or Ernie Hawkins for example, but it's well worthwhile having the whole bag of tricks of one of the Texas guitar giants on one DVD, as there's plenty else to see. The bonus clips at the end are every bit as vital to the whole package as what precedes it. When Lightnin' "Pulls A Party" - which is the title of one of the bonus tracks, what young guitar player of today wouldn't be thrilled to do his guitar tricks and have such an arresting, pretty, smiling young woman seated beside him enjoying his performance as in this clip? Lightnin must have had plenty of this during his day of playing his trademark sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars DON'T THE MOON LOOK PRETTY 29 April 2012
By T0p shelf - Published on Amazon.com

THIS IS ABOUT AS GOOD AS IT GETS FOLK'S. SEE THE GENUINE ARTICLE. YOU KNOW LONG BEFORE THE LIGHTS AND SMOKE SOMEONE HAD TO WRITE IT DOWN (Baby Please don't Go) LIGHTNIN' WROTE FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE. THE HONEST EXPRESSION OF EMOTION STRIPED DOWN TO ITS' ESSENCE. A ONE MAN BAND (He had no choice he was VERY poor) STEVIE RAY VAUGHN COMES TO MIND FOR SOME REASON,SHOULD WE DRAW COMPARISONS ? TEXAS BLUES, BIG STRONG HANDS, LONG SLENDER POWERFUL FINGERS. BOTH TOOK AN OPPORTUNITY TO TALK TO THEIR AUDIENCE BECAUSE THEY BOTH GENUINELY CARED FOR PEOPLE, THEIR FANS. LIGHTNIN' DID NOT HAVE WHAT SOME MIGHT CALL "a beautiful singing voice" some not I... ELMORE JAMES, JOHN LEE HOOKER, LUTHER ALLISON, HOWLIN' WOLF, YOU WILL NEVER HEAR ANYTHING MORE BEAUTIFUL. LIGHTNIN' PAYED HIS DUES THE HARD WAY, DESERVED ALL THE ACCOLADES HE GOT, AND A LOT MORE. WE COULD NEVER REPAY SAM FOR THE LOVE THAT HE GAVE TO ALL OF US THROUGH HIS MUSIC. BLESS YOU SAM
