Lightnin' Hopkins

Listen to Automobile (well, 35 seconds of it)

Sam Hopkins
Born 15th. March 1912 - Centerville, Texas
Died 30th. January 1982 - Houston, Texas

Lightnin', apparently, recorded more than any other blues artists. Any label, anywhere, anytime. You pay, I'll play! Singer / guitarist (again) who couldn't help but record some great tracks among his prodigious output.

Top Recording:
Mojo Hand: 2CD Anthology. Rhino R2 71226. All the best recordings (in some people's opinion!).
