Wax Love present a reissue of Lightnin' Hopkins's self-titled album, originally released in 1959. Houston, Texas's favorite son Sam John Hopkins, better known as Lightnin', was recorded in 1959 by the legendary musicologist Samuel Charters, predating and predicting the folk-blues revival of the early '60s. Highly regarded as one of the finest acoustic blues albums ever, Lightnin' Hopkins established its hero as a legend. The very definition of essential.
