SSD did not drive me away from this fine show.
  7:04pm Listener Robert:

Thanks for the main page improvement: an icon for the alternate streams that's on when they have a live program.
  7:04pm BH:

if there's any blue songs about desired superpowers, *tonight* is the night to play them
Avatar 7:06pm Fredericks:

Why did they call him Lightnin'?

@Dave: A lot of music can also be pretty repetitive and formulaic, fwiw. Just sayin.
  7:07pm JakeGould:

This show is far better than that other show despite it’s tendency towards depression and sadness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:09pm G:

@Frederick. Wiki sayeth:

"Hopkins took a second shot at Houston in 1946. While singing on Dowling Street in Houston's Third Ward (which would become his home base), he was discovered by Lola Anne Cullum of Aladdin Records, based in Los Angeles. She convinced Hopkins to travel to Los Angeles, where he accompanied the pianist Wilson Smith. The duo recorded twelve tracks in their first sessions in 1946. An Aladdin executive decided the pair needed more dynamism in their names and dubbed Hopkins "Lightnin'" and Wilson "Thunder"."
  7:12pm JakeGould:

It’s amazing and confusing how many Lightnin’ Hopkins collections there are out there.
Avatar 7:13pm Fredericks:

Ha, I assumed it was due to his speedy fret work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm G:

Small time commercialism ftw, Frederick haha
Avatar 7:16pm Fredericks:

Jake, my understanding for the vastness of his catalog has to do with the fact that Lightnin' knew he'd get ripped of for royalties, so he would record for anybody for $400 a song.
  7:17pm JakeGould:

Dude has like 80+ albums! He’d be stuck in traffic, record and album and get paid. www.discogs.com...
Avatar 7:18pm Fredericks:

Legend has it, he got paid after each song or he wouldn't record another.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm coelacanth∅:

a lot of those guys did that. John Lee Hooker must have double that
  7:21pm JakeGould:

Yeah, John Lee Hooker did the same. www.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm coelacanth∅:

i knew something was weird. i didn't remember having to decide between weekly world blues, crayons to perfume AND bodega pop live before.
kinda sucks. (for me anyway)
Avatar 7:21pm Fredericks:

He's got 80 albums, too?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Greg from ZONE 5:

  7:22pm Elvis CausticFellow:

This show is a double ass bitch.
  7:24pm JakeGould:

The tally is…

• Lightnin’ Hopkins: 85 albums, 183 compilations.
• John Lee Hooker: 72 albums, 429 compilations.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm coelacanth∅:

i think Hooker must have many more original albums than Hopkins (and likely more comps too)
he had a 60-year career.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm coelacanth∅:

oh that kinda makes sense. he had many more singles than Lightnin'. maybe they never made it onto original albums.
  7:30pm Nash Britches:

This set is phonetic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm suzyhotrod:

Dayyyym Matt! I like this Cat Hop song I'm hearing, and I'll only hear it on this show, cause its $246 on Discogs. I'll never hear it in my living room at that going rate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm ultradamno:

  7:34pm JakeGould:

Can score it on this cool cat compilation here. www.discogs.com...
  7:37pm JakeGould:

Regular blues barnyard here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Matt Fiveash:

Suzy- My 45 is one of those cheapie repros.
  7:40pm 12cc:

From the intro, I thought the Dylan tune was Mississippi John Hurt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm suzyhotrod:

Don't ruin the mystique of you owning records fancy records.
I should go buy that cat CD and blast it in my house when my dogs are jerks.
  7:45pm JakeGould:

Cats are better organized and thus can issue compilations more readily.
  7:47pm Elvis CausticFellow:

JakeGould: Louis Jordan was the Prince of barnyard songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm dave wuz here:

Wednesdays are for lovers
  7:56pm JakeGould:

And the rest of us can be here enjoying the blues.
  7:57pm Lothianman:

I have a version of this by Aretha. Which is the original?
  8:03pm Bill Proe:

RIP Daniel
