Po' Lightnin' is an album by blues musician Lightnin' Hopkins recorded in California in 1969 (with two tracks from 1961) and originally released on the Arhoolie label in 1983. The original LP featured tracks which were first released as Lightnin'! by Poppy Records in 1969. The label failed to meet the terms of its agreement and a legal dispute ensued. By 1982, a California court ruled that all rights should revert to Hopkins, and Strachwitz released eight tracks from the sessions, along with two unreleased tracks from the 1961 Lightnin' Sam Hopkins sessions on Arhoolie as Po' Lightnin' in 1983.
