The Lone Star state of Texas rivals Chicago and the Mississippi Delta as a cradle of the blues. Blind Lemon
Jefferson was the earliest name to make an impression in the Twenties – Bob Dylan and Carl Perkins later
appropriating elements of his work – while fellow singer-guitarist Lightnin’ Hopkins, featured here, was a key link
between the country and urban blues traditions. He was equally at home playing acoustic blues of amplifying his
guitar Chicago-style. Enjoy this 2 disc compilation of American music - Texas style!
