Lightnin' Hopkins - Gold Star 634 & 662 (1948-49)

Whoever said, "Lightnin' doesn't strike twice in the same place" sure didn't click here.

Here we have 2 discs waxed by Hopkins on the fabled Gold Star Records label.

Gold Star was founded in 1941 in Houston and was instrumental in launching the careers of artists such as Lightnin' Hopkins, George Jones & Freddy Fender. They also recorded ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons' first band in the '60's.

In 1983, Gibbons bought Gold Star which lays claim to being the oldest registered recording studio in the southeast.
