Product description

UK four CD box set from the Blues legend. Lightnin' Hopkins was one of the Blues' greatest talents, whose spare, expressive guitar playing, taciturn vocals and crisp versification all place him firmly in the tradition of Texas Blues. His distinctive style often included playing, in effect, bass, rhythm, lead, percussion, and vocals, all at the same time. His musical phrasing would often include a long low note at the beginning, the rhythm played in the middle range, then the lead in the high range. By playing this quickly - with occasional slaps of the guitar - the effect of bass, rhythm, percussion and lead would be created. He was an influence on Jimmie Vaughan's work, and, more significantly, on the vocals and blues style of Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, the keyboardist of the Grateful Dead until 1972. 109 tracks. Proper. 2011.
