her here: http://www.sanjacintorecords.com/whatsnew.html, way back
in 2000 (do a wordsearch for "Manning"), so they might have started
a working relationship. Hopkins used to be half of old fave Arizona
band Sidewinders, until they got sued for the name and changed to
the Sand Rubies. Sadly defunct. Now puts stuff out solo and with
his pals, the Luminarios. Seems like he knows/has played with most
everyone in the Arizona scene. The album he did with Billy Sedlmayr
called _The Fifty Percenter_ has some fine tunes. Recommended,
along with any all Sidewinders/Sand Rubies disc (except the live
ones - not the best sound). Rich has a great guitar sound, but not
the best voice, so I dig the albums above, where he works with
better singers. For the Luminarios, he's the main vocalist.

Chris. I mixed Rich Hopkins up with J.C. Hopkins and I'm amused that
Barbara Manning knows both men!
