Vinyl LP pressing. The legendary blues guitarist performed at Los Angeles' famed Ash Grove venue on many occasions over the club's decade-and-a-half existence. Ten of the selections on this set are compiled from two separate performances at the club, and none of the performances on the album have previously been available commercially. The album's A-side consists of acoustic tracks from a set recorded on November 29, 1970. The B-side collects a couple of acoustic performances from September 22, 1965, and the disc is rounded out with four electric tracks with his band from Palo Alto's In Your Ear club recorded on August 18, 1971. While most of the tunes are originals, the set lists include some distinctive cover versions of the R&B classics What I'd Say and Hi-Heel Sneakers, along with some folk/gospel nuggets, Don't The Moon Look Pretty and How Long Has It Been. Whether solo or with a band, Hopkins imprints all the tracks with his special electricity... you might call it Lightnin'. The 40-minute live collection LP will have a limited-edition pressing on black vinyl. Includes some rare photos and liner notes.
