Product Description:

Solo performer: Lightnin' Hopkins (vocals, guitar).
Recorded live at the Swarthmore College Folk Festival, Swarthmore, Pennsylvania on April 6, 1964.
All tracks have been digitally remastered.
A Lightnin' solo concert from his college kiddie-folk period (1964), this languished unissued in Fantasy Records' vaults until its release in the early '90s. That's a shame, because this concert captures Lightnin' at his beguiling best, spinning tales and blues magic with every track. His introductions are half the show, making even shopworn staples like "Baby Please Don't Go" and "My Babe" sound fresh. His guitar work is astounding, pulling off inventive leads while maintaining a constant boogie rhythm that makes other instruments superfluous. If you want a disc that clearly showcases Lightnin' Hopkins at his enchanting best, start your collection with this one; it's a charmer. ~ Cub Koda
