Brand new 2nd Edition of Lightnin' Charlie's sensational smash hit autobiography


A collection of side-splitting short stories and outrageous anecdotes from LC's experiences as a professional touring musician. WARNING: this huge volume (8.5X11 and 466 pages) and its moving, tall, and true tales is guaranteed to induce hours of extreme gut-laughter!

Absolutely hilarious! Not for the faint of heart, 'Off The Record' is outrageous, poignant, politically-incorrect, and most of all... LAUGH-OUT-LOUD FUNNY!!! Excello

You (the reader) are in for a real and rare treat! Rev. Elbert Charpie

A gem of a book! RCO3

“Lightnin' Charlie and Beth take it straight to my heart. This is gospel the way it should be! I was simply amazed. A great CD!”

“This band tackles everything from Muddy Waters, Slim Harpo, and Magic Sam to Solomon Burke, Hank Williams, and Elvis. They do so in a way that pays homage to these greats without resorting to slavish imitation and with a raw and infectious energy that’s irresistible. Lightnin’ Charlie imbues every track with the power and instinctive feeling of someone who has a
natural rapport with---and great feeling for---the genre.”
