Recorded November 15, 1960 at the Nola Penthouse Sound Studios in New York, "Lightnin' In New York" captures the legendary bluesman in classic form, including some rare solos on the piano.

Produced by Candid Records label co-founder, famed music critic and social activist Nat Hentoff, and recorded at a time when Hopkins was being "rediscovered" by white audiences, the bluesman was reluctant in accepting his new role as an "artist" before predominantly white audiences.

Remastered by Bernie Grundman
