5.0 out of 5 stars Sam Hopkins, poet of the blues, 7 Dec. 2014

(TOP 100 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: Dirty House Blues (Audio CD)
Nothin' But The Blues, Shine On Moon, My Baby's Gone, Sittin' Here Thinkin', Down To The River, Long Way From Texas, Another Fool In Town, Lonesome Dog Blues, Death Bells, Lonesome in Your Home, Gone Again, Gone With The Wind...even some of the titles on this fifty-track compilation of the great Lightnin' Hopkins have a poetry of their own, fully matched by the man's mesmerising voice.
He's one of the most marvellous singers in all blues music, and can send shivers down your spine with a phrase or simply his tone of voice.
In excellent remastered sound, these are some of the finest tracks by the prolific Hopkins, though there are many more to explore on other albums.
What else is there to say other than if you love this music, then you really must hear Houston's finest: Sam 'Lightnin' Hopkins, the poet of the blues. He sang like nobody else and played a sparse, haunting guitar. This is as good a place to start as you're likely to come across. Pretty good packaging, a bargain price, minimal but useful booklet notes - nothin' but the blues indeed.

Once heard, Lightnin' will strike you as someone you want to listen to a lot.

CD ARRIVED ON TIME. WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT THE BLUES HALL OF FAME, MOST WOULD PROBABLY START WITH THIS LEGENDARY ICONIC MAESTRO OF GUITAR BLUES AND IF YOU DON'T, THERE CAN UNDOUBTEDLY HARDLY BE MORE THAN A HANDFUL AHEAD OF HIM. OF COURSE THERE ARE THE ROBERT JOHNSON, THE MISSISSIPPI JOHN HURT & so on. PLS MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO LISTEN TO LIGHTNIN AND YOU JUST MIGHT BE ENLIGHTENED.
