California Mudslide (And Earthquake) was Lightnin' Hopkins' last LP in his original run of long play releases...a strong slab of electric delta blues replete with sparse, signature acoustic guitar backing, augmented with organ and other surprises! The legend at his lonesomest — on mudslide-colored vinyl pressed at Third Man Pressing in Detroit. "Take me outta this bottom, take me outta this bottom, little girl, fore this water rise. You know I must-a been born by the devil, po' Lightnin‘ don't wanna be baptized." — Lightnin' Hopkins (from the title track)
