    Sam “Lightnin’” Hopkins was a solid country blues guitarist who had a reputation for being one of the most compelling blues performers of the 1960’s. Releasing up to two albums a year, Lightnin’ Hopkins toured at many of the folk festivals and folk clubs, building up a large audience who followed him around the United States. Living a relatively informal lifestyle, Lightnin’ Hopkins was well revered by others in his profession as well as the audience because of songs such as “Mojo Hand.” Listening to Lightnin’ Hopkins on vinyl is still wonderful even almost 50 years later.
