The second of these two stars is for this disc's historical value: live cuts from very late in his career; the ambience of hearing an old, probably drunk Lightnin' sweating it out with a mediocre rhythm section I'm sure he'd never met before; the (often rambling) give and take with the audience. Still, the music itself is not even remotely close to being top-grade or even average Lightnin' Hopkins. He's cruising on reputation and has nothing left to prove. Sound is mediocre at best. He plays OK, but there's little commitment, life or originality. Too many of the songs are instrumentals and the others seem unfinished. Buy ONLY if you want every Lightnin' Hopkins CD or if you wonder what he was like live at the end of his career.
