Finally Met My Baby / They Wonder Who I Am
Availability: In stock
Midtempo boogie blues from the man with the mojo hand, here joined by his ‘protege’ – read ‘girlfriend’ -- Ruth Ames. Sit back and wonder on the fact that Hopkins seems to be conjuring a series of improvised licks out of his electric guitar on the spot, rarely repeating himself, never off the beat. The flip switches it up a gear, this time with Hopkins taking over vocal duties and cajoling the sticksman to ‘beat that drum boy’. The original 78 of They Wonder… was credited to Lightnin Hopkins and His Guitar. Well, you would, wouldn’t you?
