Lightnin HopkinsShootin Fire – April 11, 1969 ... CD
Cicadelic, 1969. New Copy ... $15.99
Previously-unreleased material from the mighty Lightnin Hopkins – recorded in Texas at the end of the 60s, and with a quality level that's right up there with Hopkins' best rootsy albums of the 60s! Things are stripped-down, but never sloppy at all – and there's a surprisingly top-shelf quality to the material, as Lightnin charms us right away with his seductive acoustic guitar lines, and almost conversational style of singing – an approach that gives the whole thing a surprisingly intimate feel, one that's only augmented by the strength of the production. Titles include "Rainy Day In Houston", "My Little Darling", "Shake That Thing", "Old House Torn Down", "Movin On Out", "Shinin Moon", "Stinking Foot", and "My Baby Ain't Got No Shoes". 20 tracks in all – 77 minutes of music!

Lightnin Hopkins & Billy BizorWake Up The Dead ... CD
Cicadelic, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99
A sweet set that not only offers up rare work from Lightnin Hopkins, but also some even more obscure material from his harmonica player Billy Bizor! The set begins with an album's worth of tracks that featuer the pair together – Hopkins completely charming on vocals, with an easygoing style that seems almost effortless, as does his guitar – and these background lines from Bizor that really set the tunes on fire – again with this quality that's never overdone, but which really makes the music sparkle. CD also then features a few more solo tracks by Bizor – then moves into a whole bonus CD of obscure demos that just feature Billy alone. Package includes a whopping 38 tracks – and titles include "Wake Up The Dead", "Vietnam War", "How Dooz It", "Mojo Hand", "Lightnin Bolt", "T Model Ford", "Whiskey Head Woman", "When I'm Dead", "Screwdriver", "You Knock Me Out", "Let's Pitch One", and "Billy Bizor Is Dead".
