The Lone Star state of Texas rivals Chicago and the Mississippi Delta as a cradle of the blues. Blind Lemon Jefferson was the earliest name to make an impression in the Twenties - Bob Dylan and Carl Perkins later appropriating elements of his work while fellow singer-guitarist Lightnin' Hopkins, featured here, was a key link between the country and urban blues traditions. He was equally at home playing acoustic blues of amplifying his guitar Chicago-style. Enjoy this 2 disc compilation of American music - Texas style!
