Lightnin' Hopkins - The Legacy Of The Blues Vol. 12 mp3 flac

referencing Legacy Of The Blues Vo. 2, LP, Album, RE, GNPS-10022, GNPS 1000022. This Lightnin' release is really only for completists. Sounds as if a bit of "imbibing" may have preceded these sessions. The recording quality is dynamic and quite good. The whole band as a unit is out of control and time. However on close listening Hopkins is occasionally pulling off some amazing riffs during a few tunes. Those few riffs are why I've rated this 3 when it's really about a 1-1/2.

Sam Charters produced this session, featuring Lightnin' and a three-piece band following him as best they can. Lightnin' is playing an acoustic with an electric pickup on it through an amplifier, and even throws in a bit of slide guitar on the chaotic opener, "Please Help Poor Me" and "The Hearse Is Backed Up to the Door. But ultimately the rhythm section isn't all that great a fit, and Lightnin' sounds distracted at times. Not essential, but it does have its moments.
