Lightnin' Hopkins
King Of Dowling Street

Lightnin' Hopkins - King Of Dowling Street

King Of Dowling Street contains 57 tracks with 20 never before on CD, and 12 previously unreleased performances, all remastered from analog tapes.

Texas bluesman Lightnin' Hopkins' career was both long and fruitful. He performed live for six decades and recorded for over 30 years, amassing a catalog that was larger than almost any of his contemporaries. Not only was he prolific, but he was also a great raconteur and a very good live performer with an act honed to perfection at pre-war dances and parties. His guitar playing was unconventional, some have even called it ragged, but it is not as a guitarist that he will be remembered.
