Overview

Prestige Profiles, Vol. 8 contains previously released tracks taken from Texas bluesman Lightnin' Hopkins' short stint with the label. These 16 cuts feature both solo and small-combo sessions recorded between 1960 and 1964, and include tasteful versions of such Lightnin' favorites as "Mojo Hand," "Katie Mae," "I'm a Crawling Black Snake," and "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl." Much like the discography of fellow bluesman John Lee Hooker, it's easy to get overwhelmed by the plethora of Hopkins material available, which is why both Prestige Profiles, Vol. 8 and Rhino's excellent Blues Masters: The Very Best of Lightnin' Hopkins are highly recommended collections by the legendary bluesman. For a limited time, the first ten volumes in the Prestige Profiles series include a free bonus compilation CD of Prestige artists.
