Country Blues
Used - LP - TLP 1035
1959 Mono Original. Some Spindles Marks On The Labels, But The Vinyl Appears Glossy. “While Hopkins In His Prime Could Crank Out As Many Albums As There Were Days In The Week (And Sometimes More), Some Dates Were More Inspired Than Others And This Casual Recording Is Happily One Of Those Times. In 1959, Armed With Nothing More Than A Single Microphone Mono Tape Recorder, Folklorist Mack Mccormick Recorded Hopkins In An Informal Setting In Hopes Of Catching Some Rough-Edged Performances That He Felt Were Lacking From The Bluesman's Then-Recent Studio Efforts. That He Succeeded Mightily Is Evidenced In This 15-Song Collection, Almost Casual In The Way Lightnin' Tosses Off Themes, Lyrics, And Emotion In A Most Cavalier Fashion. Even With A Thorough Sonic Solution No Noise Process Cleansing, These Tapes Still Contain Vocal And Instrument Distortion In Spots Where Hopkins Got Too Close To The Microphone. But None Of It Matters In The End, For Here Is Lightnin' Truly In His Element, Playing For His Friends And His Own Enjoyment, Minus The Comercial Overlay Of The Times Or The Imposed "Folk Blues" Posturing Of His Later Acoustic Recordings. Not The Place To Start, But A Real Good Place To Visit Along The Way.” – Cub Koda, AMG more
