Lightnin' Hopkins Vinyl Record Albums

Sam Hopkins: American country blues singer, songwriter and guitarist. Born: 15 March 1912, Centerville, Leon County, Texas, USA. Died: 30 January 1982, Houston, Texas, USA. In 1920, Hopkins met the legendary Blind Lemon Jefferson at a social function and got a chance to play with him. His cousin was Texas Alexander. While they were playing together in Houston in 1946, he was discovered by Lola Anne Cullum of Los Angeles' Aladdin Records. Hopkins first recorded with pianist Wilson Smith and the pair were dubbed 'Lightning' & 'Thunder' to add some dynamic to their marketing. Strong recordings followed from Hopkins, such as his song "Mojo Hand" (1960). He later inspired many artists such as Jimmie Vaughan, Townes Van Zandt and Ron "Pigpen" McKernan.
