Lightnin Hopkins: Lightnin Hopkins in New York 12"

Barnaby Records


This solo album from 1970 features the classic bluesman Lightnin' Hopkins on eight unaccompanied solos, not only singing and playing guitar but taking some rare solos on piano (including Lightnin's Piano Boogie). Hopkins recorded a lot of albums in the early 1970s, and this Candid release is one of his better sets of the period, highlighted by Take It Easy, Mighty Crazy, and Mister Charlie.
