  1. Like it, Frank! Thanks for the introduction. Is this a new acquisition?

    1. Thanks, Marie. I think I first heard Hop Wilson on a Goldband 45 of “Chicken Stuff”; then around 1970 Flyright put out an LP, Chicken Stuff: Houston Ghetto Blues, that devoted one entire side to Hop Wilson. I was a big fan from there on!
