Lightnin’ Hopkins and More!
Posted in Honey on 07.20.05

The eight (!!) Lightnin’ Hopkins videos have been uploaded and are ready to be downloaded over in Blues Videos – they are post war of course, but they are still really wonderful and features some stunning guitar work. A couple more videos are still left to post, I’ll also put the codec that each video needs once I figure them all out – but most should be divx or xvid.

Blind John Davis has always been one of my favorite blues session piano players. It was only recently learned that he did a handful of pre-war recordings under his own name. This track “Anna Lou Breakdown” features some really great piano playing – Davis was never a flashy player, but he had the best piano “sound” around and a few stanzas of lyrics. The real treat here of course is the wonderful piano playing by Davis who never really got to shine as a session player.
