Recorded By Chris Strachwitz In Dallas Texas In 1960. Texan bluesman Melvin "Lil Son" Jackson was a contemporary of Lightnin' Hopkins who originally recorded for the Gold Star and Imperial labels in the 1940s and ‘50s. A car accident in the mid-‘50s led to Jackson giving up his music career and returning to work as a mechanic. Arhoolie's Chris Strachwitz pulled him out of retirement in 1960, convincing him to record this classic and rare Texas blues LP. Reissued in all its original glory.
