Crown/Southern Routes, 1963. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
About as classic as you can get for the legendary John Lee Hooker – a set of recordings from his early postwar years that perfectly define the special touch and electric genius of his music!

Prestige/OBC, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
One the best of the Lightnin Hopkins records for Prestige in the early 60s – unaccompanied here, just as a lot of his most ardent admirers prefer – and it really is deeply effective work!

Jewel, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Classic blues from Lightnin Hopkins – a set that's far rootsier than you might expect from the "electric show" in the title!
