Originally recorded in Houston in the early 1960s, Hop Wilson's Houston Ghetto Blues has been regarded as almost an underground blues classic for years. In terms of fervor, energy and raw elemental power, there is little that can top Hop Wilson. His slashing slide and rough soulful vocals make him one of the underservedly lesser-known greats, with more in common with Elmore James and the first generation of blues greats than with the many interchangable and largely undistinguishable blues guitarists today. Among blues aficianados, Houston Ghetto Blues should be regarded as essential listening!
