artist/s:' Lightnin' Hopkins. album: Smokes Like Lightning. number catalogue: 02518055123 (OBC 551). One of the most weirdly compelling elements of Smokes Like Lightnin' is Mack McCormick's liner notes, reproduced from the original 1963 LP. Almost breathtaking in their ferocity, McCormick's notes characterize Hopkins as a spoiled crybaby whose only redeeming quality is his ability to make music. The album, recorded in three 1962 sessions, consists simply of Hopkins and his guitar, except for three songs that are performed with a full band. This song is by Lightnin' Hopkins and appears on the album Smokes Like Lightning (1963). Whoa it smoke like lightnin', yeah but shine like goldDon't you hear me talking pretty baby,Smoke like lightnin', yeah but shine like goldYeah you know I see my little fair oneLying there on a cooling bowl. Yes I see the hearse one morning backed up to our doorDon't you hear me talking?Soon one morning, backed up to our doorWell you know I could see my little babyLying there on a cooling bowl.

I don't think the first issue of this had the trident label. Mine doesn't. It has the original bluesville label with 203 S. Washington Ave., Bergenfeld, N.J.
