Candid recordings of the songs, commentary and guitar of Houston's unique blue minstrel Lightnin' Hopkins', recorded just as the 1960s American folk / blues revival was beginning to get underway. Inspired by great Texas bluesmen like Blind Lemon Jefferson, Hopkins was known to improvise blues masterpieces at the drop of a hat, often using semi-autobiographical tales to describe life in the segregated South. Songs include "Trouble In Mind," "The Foot Race Is On," "Short Haired Woman," "So Long Baby" and "Santa Fe Blues." Exact repro, originally released in 1960.
