Hi, I’m the chinstrokin’ champ and I got a question for y’all:
When “push comes. to shove” what is the favourite CD un your collection? And why?
Not your favourite album, because a compilation, even of different artists is fine. Not a CD that is in someone else’s collection or one that you used to have. You must have it now. It must be durable, so you’ve had it for a long. time. No lists please.
My own fave? The Texas Bluesman by Lightnin’ Hopkins. Because old Sam is my main man. And he’s the compilation king. His many, many recordings are available mostly on compilations. This one is great, since it has the definitive versions of some of his greatest tunes such as Mojo Hand and Tom Moore’s Farm (it doesn’t have Shaggy Dog, but hey you got to listen to some of his other compilations too). I’ve had it for decades and never not loved it.
