” Hopkins had actually been a respected recording artist in the decade following his very first sessions in 1948. His stark, functional guitar style and rich Texas drawl made his work instantly recognizable. The inheritor of a blues tradition that returned to Blind Lemon Jefferson and Texas Alexander, he was an idiosyncratic musician, at his best when playing alone. His predecessors’ work was reflected in his first album session, tape-recorded by Sam Charters in January 1959. Not having taped commercially for several years, Lightnin’ was in major state of mind, resulting in a set of skillful performances that carried more weight than his later, regularly arbitrary sessions. Later on CD reissues have exceeded this work, simply by having more tracks.”
