COUNTRY BLUES - LIGHTIN' HOPKINS
By the time this LP was recorded in 1959 Lightnin' Hopkins was already a star, but hoping to catch Hopkins in a more informal and relaxed setting, American folklorist Mack McCormick travelled to Texas with just a mono tape recorder. Despite, or perhaps because of, the lack of professional equipment, McCormick manages to capture Hopkins in rare form. The listener has the impression that Hopkins is just hanging out on his front porch with a few friends, playing the blues. It was through his contact with McCormick that Hopkins was presented to rock & roll / blues revival audiences, playing Carnegie Hall with Joan Baez and Pete Seeger in 1960.
