The great Texas bluesman Lightnin' Hopkins(1912-1982) recorded these 43 magnificent sides for ALADDIN in Los Angeles & Houston between 1946 & 1948. Lightnin'(guitar, vocals) is mostly alone but Wilson "Thunder" Smith(piano, vocals) accompanies on some tracks with an unknown drummer on others.. Hopkins intense guitar and heartfelt poetic lyrics are a compelling combination and this 2-CD set contains many of his finest recordings. Although 'The Complete Aladdin Recordings' title is probably inaccurate this bargain collection with excellent notes by Pete Welding, is a superb introduction to Lightnin' Hopkins early work.
