Product Description

Product Description

A long-overdue release on heavyweight vinyl of the Texax blues legend Sam Lightnin' Hopkins' only album for the International Artists label in Houston. Recorded in January 1968 it stands out in Lightnin' discography due to unusual line-up on the sessions, with the veteran bluesman fuelled by homemade moonshine supported by a young hippy rhythm section, comprising Danny Thomas and Duke Davis from the Thirteenth Floor Elevators, both high on acid at the time. This however is no failed hippy/blues amalgam just a straightforward honest blues album with the great man backed by fans, who happened to be members of a psychedelic band. Its significance lies in how the music cut across the generation and racial boundaries within the segregated and repressive atmosphere of late 1960s Texas.

There have been grumbles in some circles about the remastering, but for the time being these are the best bet out there. Besides this release, which was IA-4, the rest of the series includes The 13th FLOOR ELEVATORS 'The Psychedelic Sounds Of' (IA-1), RED CRAYOLA 'Parable of Arable Land' (IA-2), LOST AND FOUND 'Everybody's Here' (IA-3), GOLDEN DAWN 'Power Plant,' 13th FLOOR ELEVATORS 'Easter Everywhere' (IA-5), RED KRAYOLA 'God Bless The Red Krayola And All Who Sail With It' (IA-7), 13th FLOOR ELEVATORS 'Live' (the only reissue not released as a digi-book, a remastered version can be found on '...Read more ›
