Synopsis by Mark Deming

Two of the greatest blues artists to emerge from the fertile Texas musical community are documented on this home video release. Masters of the Country Blues: Mance Liscomb and Lighting Hopkins features rare filmed performances by "Texas Songster" Liscomb, showing off his country-blues styled picking on such songs as "Can I Do Something For You" andf "Goin' Down Slow", as well as the more agressive and energetic stylings of the legendary Lightning Hopkins, whose set includes "Mojo Hand" and "Baby Scratch My Back".
