"Let's Pull A Party" Lightnin' Hopkins

I don't usually publish older videos on the bog, but this deserves its own post. It is a wonder our digital imformation age we live in today to be able watch blues history on-demand. Growing up, I never had access to footage like this. So, I say... may today's new generations be inspired and influenced by their easy access to the rich history of the blues available to them! And Lightning is on of my all time favorites. Who is yours?

The great Texas bluesman Lightnin' Hopkins, under the watchful eye of a very young Joan Baez, performs "Let's Pull a Party." From the DVD "Texas Blues Guitar."
