Sam Lightnin' Hopkins played a fundamental role in shaping the unique sound of East-Texas blues and yet, is still seen as one of the most under-appreciated bluesmen of all time. This album contains 10 classic blues tracks recorded in 1961 and is a must-buy for anyone looking to get acquainted with the Texas blues style or who simply enjoys the artist's trademark guitar licks and vocal stylings.

These recordings represent the first time that Lightnin' has been accompanied by a group of musicians who regularly played with him in Houston, allowing for a rare glimpse at what might have been heard in the dance halls of the Houston night life scene. In addition, these electrified recordings are mixed with four songs that offer acoustic guitar samplings, reflecting Lightnin's time as sidewalk minstrel.
