A seminal figure in the history of the blues, vocalist/guitarist Sam "Lightnin'" Hopkins specialized in the spare, rural sound pioneered by Robert Johnson and Blind Lemon Jefferson. Hopkins is well represented by this excellent 16-track Rhino collection, which draws from the bluesman's 1940s, '50s, and '60s material. Although the tunes occasionally feature some minimal backing, Hopkins, like many blues legends (particularly the aforementioned artists), is at his best when it's just his weathered voice and a guitar, as on the ominous "Shotgun Blues" and the pleading classic "Baby Please Don't Go." Some sessions, such as the appropriately energetic "Coffee Blues," find Hopkins trading in his acoustic guitar for an electric, but regardless of his six-string choice, he's always in prime form. Although there are other fine, and, in some cases, more comprehensive Hopkins compilations on the market, this wisely selected overview of his peak years is still one of the best available.
