A true poet of the blues, Lightnin' Hopkins was a master of tall,
tongue-in-cheek tales, often made up on the spot in the recording studio. The
first song on this album, "I'm Going to Build Me a Heaven of My Own," describes
an encounter with a bearded man claiming to be Jesus Christ. Hopkins also puts
his personal stamp on Willie Dixon's "My Babe" and Smokey Hogg's "Too Many
Drivers," among others.
