Great recording by Lightnin' Hopkins. The electric guitar may be lesser in nuance than an acoustic, as others have pointed out, but in force and and emotion it's absolutely fantastic and in unison with Lightnin's voice. Bought this on a dutch bootleg LP 25 years ago and it has stayed with me ever since. A joy to have it on a great sounding CD now. Sam's voice and words touches that most inner core of your emotions and loneliness with an energy that lifts you. This music is up there with the greatest, regardless of genre.
