Information about this great box set! 30 Oct 2009
By Paul J. Broussard Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This four-disc, sixty-three track collection is comprised of four original albums of material from Lightnin' Hopkins originally recorded for Everest Records.Lightnin' started his career singing on Houston's street corners for change and drink and his best performances are those intimate concerts: Down and dirty, out and out blues, honest and true--perfect documents of Lightnin's style, songs and performance.
From the honest portrayal of a family in disarray in "Mama And Papa Hopkins" to the long, long road of his Texas youth he sang of in "75 Highway," to the street corner busking given a turn in "Get Off My Toe," on volume 3 of the Everest recordings contains as much of the life this great bluesman lived as could be hammered into sixteen concise songs. Those who came later to the life of the blues were deeply influenced by Lightnin'!
"Once he was playing, he would almost slip into a trance and a blues stream of consciousness would come pouring out, making him nearly oblivious to what was going on around him. Sometimes he would stop altogether and start talking the song instead of singing it. At best the rhythms would pick up speed or slow down; the musicians would desperately try and readjust by which time, Hopkins would have changed it again."
