I’m Achin’

Lightnin Hopkins’s “I’m Achin'” backed with “Let’s Move” was originally recorded in 1954, but not released until September 1959 on Herald Records.  That same year Herald also released an album of Lightnin’s 1954 sessions titled, “Lightnin’ and the Blues.”  The label had been releasing songs from the sessions over a five year period.  There would only be one more after this one, and it was in January 1960.  Wouldn’t it be cool if that one was on 78, too?
