5.0 out of 5 stars Essential listening for blues fans, 10 Mar. 2012
By 
This review is from: Complete Prestige/Bluesvil (Audio CD)
This is a great box set, it has loads of material that you are going to struggle like hell to find elsewhere. We all have Lightnin' CDs with the favourites on, likewise JLH, Muddy, etc. If I see another compilation with Dimples, Spoonful and Mannish Boy on it I swear I'll be sick. This may actually be important, as I wouldn't recommend this as an introduction to Lightnin Hopkins. As such you might find it a bit overwhelming, there are after all a number of albums on here, some doubled up on one CD, and it is difficult to navigate. So blues beginners, hang back a bit. You need to do your apprenticeship on the introductory Best-Ofs in order to appreciate this, and for this it is all the better.

Thanks for the warning to beginners! Could you recommend a good introductory CD for someone primarily interested in Lightnin's acoustic work? Thanks.
