• lightnin' hopkins Shootin' Fire (CD, £14.75)

    label: Cicadelic Records

    Lightnin' Hopkins recorded over a dozen songs for the Clarity Music Company at the "ACA" Recording Studio in Houston in April of 1969. Since the 1970s some of these songs got released on haphazard compilations with the bass and drums mixed too high, the guitar leads mixed too low, and excessive "reverb" in an attempt to make Lightnin' sound more contemporary. Now, for the first time ever, the original 4-track masters have been remixed without any of the extraneous studio misjudgments that marred the previous releases. As an added bonus you get previously unreleased recordings such as 'Movin' On Out When The Saints March In', 'Old House Torn Down', 'Mistrust My Baby And She Mistrust Me', and 'Baby Please Don't Do Me Wrong'. A large selection of never before seen photos, contracts, and documents rounds out this collection of rarities. TRACKS: 01. Born In The Bottom 02. Rainy Day In Houston 03.
