Thanks for the info BH (as usual!) re: the Brownie and Sonny WP CD. It appears that the original CD set is out-of-print stateside, but there are used copies available for around $10 via the usual sources.

This "twofer" is well worth owning. The first track of the "Summit" session is a wonderful musical "badinage" between BMcG and Lightnin' Hopkins concerning BM's 1950s 78 "A Letter To Lightnin' Hopkins" (from memory a rework of Fuller's Jivin' Big Bill Blues) in which LH hilariously finally get's to respond to McGhee's recording.

eMusic.com has MANY of Lightnin's albums.  At least one is credited to an artist named "Lightning Hopkins", so that will show up on a different artist page.  The album cover actually printed it that way.  You may prefer to buy them elsewhere to get the covers and notes, but if you are looking for a selection of his albums along with 30-second song samples of each song, it's a good resource.
