• Lightnin’ HOPKINS - Thinkin’ and Worryin’ – The Aladdin Singles 1947-1952

Lightnin' Hopkins was one of the greatest and most popular authentic blues artists. These 26 titles comprise the first 13 singles released by Lightnin' Hopkins between 1947 and 1952. They weren't his first recordings but they were the first released under his own name.

Although he did record with other musicians and even with full bands it's these acoustic classics that best illustrate his art and they are some of the most endearing blues tracks ever recorded.

Includes the popular songs 'Katie Mae Blues', 'Big Mama Jump' and his biggest chart hit 'Shotgun Blues'.

A true genius of the genre this Lightnin' Hopkins release by Jasmine is a must have for blues and R&B fans.
