Product Description:

Personnel: Lightnin' Hopkins (vocals, guitar).
Liner Note Author: Kerry Kudlacek.
Recording information: 1954.
Lightnin' Hopkins in a heavily amplified mode (especially for 1954!) and tearing it up with some of the wildest licks of his long and storied career! It's hard to fathom a more torrid tempo than the one he employs for "Hopkins' Sky Hop," and "Flash Lightnin'," "Lightnin's Boogie," and "Lightnin' Stomp" aren't far behind. Alas, Hopkins' Herald waxings didn't sell particularly well -- though they're downright astonishing in retrospect. ~ Bill Dahl
