Billy Bizor & Lightnin' Hopkins - Blow My Blues Away
The blues revival of the 1960s allowed the spotlight to finally fall on
performers like Billy Bizor, an otherwise obscure harpist best known in
conjunction with his recordings in support of his cousin, the renowned Lightin' Hopkins.
Born in Centerville, Texas in 1917, Bizor (also, variously, Bizer and
Biser) dwelled in almost total obscurity prior to the 1960s, developing a
spare, haunted sound largely unaffected by the passage of time, making
him a prime candidate for rediscovery by purists. Among his first
recordings were a series of unheralded early-1960s dates backing
Hopkins; between 1968 and 1969, Bizor cut his only solo session in
Houston with producer Roy Ames, revealing him to be an intense,
emotionally charged singer. Eventually issued as Blowing My Blues Away,
the end result went unreleased for several years; tragically, Bizor
himself never saw the recordings come to light -- he died April 4, 1969.
Filling more or less a request. This rip is plucked from internet and not my rip at 128kbps and without cover scans.
