An interesting collection of stray Lightnin' sides from 1959 and 1960. On some, he's playing alone and acoustic, on others he's playing electric with a small band, even turning in chaotic instrumentals like "Guitar Lightnin,'" "Shake Yourself," and "Talk of the Town." Most of these are studio tracks, but there's some live stuff on here as well, most notably "Big Car Blues," the by-now-familiar version which shows up on a lot of other Hopkins anthologies. The most interesting track here is "Shaggy Dog," featuring a rhythm section that follow him every step of the way with a trombone player playing right along -- and it all works! For a hodgepodge of leftovers, there's a lot of great Lightnin' on here. ~ Cub Koda
