Lightnin' Hopkins: Lightnin in New York (Vinyl LP)
The recordings here were made at a pivotal moment in his career. In 1960, at 48 years old, he was no longer a star in the black community, but was becoming a folk legend. His deeply personal music not only reflected the experiences of his community but touched a universal nerve. Chris Strachwitz, who often recorded Hopkins, has called his records brief audio snapshots of one of the great folk poets to emerge from the African-American experience in Texas.
