Last Night Blues is an album by the blues musician Lightnin’ Hopkins, with Sonny Terry, recorded in 1960 and released on the Bluesville label the following year.
AllMusic stated: “Lightnin’ Hopkins may be Texas’s most distinctive and influential blues export. His easy, fluid fingerpicking and witty, extemporaneous storytelling are always a delight, and his performances on Last Night Blues are no exception. The album is spare and acoustic, with Hopkins’s voice and guitar accompanied by minimal percussion and Sonny Terry’s harmonica … this dynamite disc represents what the blues should be: stripped-down, soulful, and full of truth”. The Penguin Guide to Blues Recordings awarded the album 3 stars, noting: “Sonny Terry’s contributions to Last Night Blues is entirely and discreetly responsive”.
