• lightnin' hopkins & billy bizor Wake Up the Dead! (double CD, £19.95)

    label: Cicadelic Records

    Lightnin' Hopkins woke up The Dead when he played San Francisco in the 1960s, and his song 'Wake Up The Dead' is the centrepiece of this two-and-a-half-hour journey into the electrified world of Texas blues. Accompanying Lightnin' is his long time harmonica player, Billy Bizor. While Lightnin' had a prolific recording career, Bizor's stature is relatively obscure due to the lack of solo recordings he released during his lifetime. Fortunately, 'Wake Up The Dead' seeks to rectify that situation by including the complete June 17, 1968 session with Lightnin' and Bizor, plus all of Bizor's 1969 solo recordings. As an added bonus, the rest of the April 11, 1969 session that didn't fit onto Lightnin's 'Shootin' Fire' album is included as well. TRACKS: Disc One: Lightnin' Hopkins & Billy Bizor 01.
