Analogue Productions releases 25 of the most collectible, rarest, most
audiophile-sounding Rudy Van Gelder recordings ever made in their Prestige
Stereo Series on Hybrid Stereo SACD.
Sam "Lightnin'" Hopkins, a true poet who invented most of his lyrics on the spot
and never seemed to run out of new ideas, was a blues giant of post-war blues
whose style was rooted in pre-war Texas traditions. While he cranked up his amp
to fierce proportions when performing for his friends at Houston juke joints,
producers who recorded him for the so-called folk-blues market usually insisted
that he use an acoustic guitar for more "authentic" results.Either way,
Lightnin' seldom made a bad record, and this June 4, 1963, session on which he
played acoustic was among his finest, thanks much to the sensitive support of
bassist Leonard Gaskin and drummer Herbie Lovelle, who did a remarkable job of
following his irregular bar patterns and abrupt song endings.
