This new compilation brings us the best of Hopkins' 1946-1948 recordings for the Los Angeles based Aladdin Record label. Remarkable solitary blues recorded in the fully-formed individual style on which he would build a life-long career. Hopkins scored national hits with "Shotgun Blues" and "Short Haired woman", essential, evocative Texas blues, rooted in a tradition going back to Blind Lemon Jefferson.
