Lightnin' (subtitled The Blues of Lightnin' Hopkins) is an album by blues musician Lightnin' Hopkins recorded in 1960 and released on the Bluesville label the following year. The session has an informal, relaxed quality, and this approach serves a 48-year-old Hopkins impressively well.
Hopkins' only accompaniment consists of bassist Leonard Gaskin and drummer Belton Evans, both of whom play in an understated fashion and do their part to make this intimate setting successful.
