Sometimes you have to travel 1,200 miles to find something from home. Up top is an early pressing of 'Lightnin' Sam Hopkins' I found in Minneapolis this past weekend. Below is the 2012 reissue I've had for a few years. Unfortunately I can't find anything definitive on the pressing online. Which is not terribly surprising given the way Lightnin's music was released over the years. This copy is not an OG as the back cover is different, but I reckon it wasn't pressed too long after as it's constructed the same way with one piece of paper wrapped around the cardboard sleeve. I've never seen a Lightnin' record that wasn't a 21st century reissue, and I certainly never thought I'd come across an old pressing up north! It sounds so warm and crisp; I'd be hard pressed to tell you if he was sitting right here in my living room or not. It's amazing. 'Lightnin' Sam Hopkins' was originally released on Arhoolie in 1962. Some songs were recorded in Houston in '62 and the rest in Berkeley in '61. There are so many Lightnin' albums to choose from - he was prolific, recording anywhere, anytime, for seemingly a million different labels. But I think this one is about as good a place to start as any! I love hearing him sing about Houston, especially on this record on "Ice Storm Blues." That song is 56 years old and we still worry about "ice storms" here! (which anyone in the north would scoff at) I will always think that Lightnin' Hopkins is the greatest musician to come out of Houston. And he is one of my most favorite bluesmen of all! I'm a happy lady to now have this old friend in my collection.

Day 25 #MayVinylChallenge - Record People Would be Surprised that You Own: John Denver's Greatest Hits - John Denver (1973)

I don't think it's surprising that I (or anyone for that matter) owns this album as it is routinely found at average thrift store. However, I guess this is surprising in the sense that I rarely post any country records on here. I couldn't think of any other recors to post, so I went down the country road (get it? πŸ˜‚), like many others for today's post. This is legitimately one of my favourite greatest hits compilations. I know the lyrics too well and sing along WAY too passionately for someone who's never left the city πŸ˜‚

"I chose this track because it was one of the frst tracks I heard when I started listening to House/Techno. It directly caught me, still does today and I believe the reason for that is, that it has a soul which sounds maybe cheesy but you definitely hear the difference in tracks which have been made with or without passion. For me it is a timeless track, as you can't really pigeonhole it. I love its pumping bassline and the subtle use of chords, this track simply has an incredible energy". - our #ArtistOfTheWeek @KlangKuenstler on his chosen #CrateDigger track: btprt.dj/Flying-Scotsmen

Little Feat, Feats Don't Fail Me Now, 1974, Warner Bros Records. Cover art by Neon Park, same artist of the "Sailin' Shoes" cover. Og pressing in the original shrink. On the tail end of my drive home from work today, some Little Feat came on the radio, and as usual, Lowell's voice inebriated my mind the boogie. #littlefeat #featdontfailmenow #1974 #warnerbrosrecords #lowellgeorge #boogie #blues #jamrock #funky #bluesrecords #funkblues #keepspinninrecords #vinyl #vinycollection #vinylcommunity #vinylrecords #vinyljunkie #vinylgram #cratedigger #dustyfingers #33rpm #albumart #nowspinning
