Texas bluesman Melvin ‘Lil Son’ Jackson was a contemporary of Lightnin’ Hopkins who originally recorded for the Gold Star and Imperial labels in the ‘40s and ‘50s. A car accident in the mid-‘50s led to Jackson giving up his music career and returning to work as a mechanic. Arhoolie Records’ Chris Strachwitz pulled him out of retirement in 1960, convincing him to record this self-titled classic and rare Texas blues LP. Reissued in all its original glory on vinyl in a deluxe old-style jacket.
