Recorded in January 1968, Free Form Patterns stands out in Hopkins' discography due to the unusual line-up on the sessions, with the veteran bluesman - fuelled by homemade moonshine - supported by a young, hip rhythm section, comprising Danny Thomas and Duke Davis from The 13th Floor Elevators (both high on acid at the time). Free Form Patterns is no failed hippy/blues hybrid, however, just a straightforward, honest blues album with the great man backed by fans, who happened to be members of a legendary Psychedelic band. Its significance lies in how the music cut across the generation and racial boundaries within the segregated and repressive atmosphere of late 1960s Texas.
