Lightnin' Hopkins, a leading perfomer in Texas blues for 40 years, and Roosevelt Sykes, one of the foremost pianists of the 1900s, are captured onstage, in informal settings, in these intimate portraits-which now register as priceless documents of 20th century American music. We don't have any crew added to this movie. You can help by adding some! Discussions.
Lightnin' Hopkins set is very good until the last two songs, which are just mediocre Lightnin'. Sometimes the man produced great recordings; most of his stuff from the late 1940s and early 1950s is great. It is a very professional documentary. I f you are interested in the history of the blues and learning pickin' styles you will be very satisfied with this one!

Originally released on the Diablo label in 1962, ROOSEVELT SYKES SINGS THE BLUES is a classic Sykes date. The set is full of romping boogies, slow-burn ballads, and straight-ahead blues stomps featuring a loose but gutsy band backing Sykes on vocals and piano. Sykes's singing and playing are characteristically bright, and he manages to sound elegant and classy without ever losing his bluesy punch. The 2006 reissue boasts improved sound and is a happy reminder of the pleasures of this luminous bluesman. 28% OFF. 100 Hits: Blues (5-CD). Prestige Profiles (Plus Bonus CD, Volume 8) (2-CD).
