Reseña de álbum

This compilation is a good one-disc introduction to Lightnin' Hopkins' work. For one, it's still in print and relatively easy to find. After being rediscovered during the '60s folk revival, Legacy issued this best-of collection in the late '60s, and the emphasis is on acoustic country blues. It's well nigh impossible to encompass a career as wide as that of Lightnin' Hopkins in a single-disc compilation, but Hopkins' engaging personality, strong vocals, idiosyncratic rhythmic sense, and humor do come across on tunes like "Big Black Cadillac Blues."
