Harding "Hop" Wilson

My Woman's Got a Black Cat Bone [1960]
Steel Guitar Blues Deep Cuts 2015 via U5
a note about this track

Lap-Steel Guitar Player Hop Wilson Began His Career Performing With King Ivory Lee Siemien and Ice Water Jones During The 1950's, Playing The Roadhouses Of SE Texas. Wilson Was Virtually Unknown Outside The State, But Through His Influence On Johnny Winter, Jimmie Vaughan And Ron Wood, His Sound Still Echoes To This Day. The Few Tracks Recorded For A Small Label In Lake Charles Never Troubled The National Charts, Hop Didn't Have World Fame, But His Licks Turn Up All Over Texas Roadhouse Blues. He Continued To Play The Houston Clubs Until His Passing In 1975.
