Baby Please Don’t Go

Lightnin’ Hopkins

Lightnin’ Folk

Lightnin’ Hopkins plays “Baby Please Don’t Go” during the mid-1960’s.

Hopkins’ popularity grew among folk audiences after he played Carnegie Hall in October of 1960 sharing the stage with Joan Baez and Pete Seeger. Because of this new found audience he would add more of the standards played by his contemporaries to his already abundant repertoire. Nine-string guitarist Big Joe Williams is the credited author of “Baby Please Don’t Go”, a song first recorded by Williams with his “Washboard Blues Singers” in 1935.
