Double vinyl LP pressing. Lightnin' Hopkins is widely considered one of the great popular architects of the blues style that came be known as "country blues" and which proved to be huge influence on the future development of Rock 'n' Roll. "Mojo Hand" was one of Hopkins' signature tunes. Mixing his own style with Louisiana Creole and voodoo culture, the song ripples with an occult energy. This album, recorded for Fire Records, is especially interesting because it casts Hopkins in a more R&B-flavored environment. This obvious effort to get a hit takes for some excellent blues; moody and powerful performances play throughout. The Penguin Guide to Blues Recordings wrote that "Lightnin' is focused and businesslike and delivers a strong and varied sequence of songs; the bassist and drummer unobtrusive but very much there".
