Lightnin' Strikes is an album by blues musician Lightnin' Hopkins recorded in Texas in 1962 and released on the Vee-Jay label. The Penguin Guide to Blues Recordings said "Creatively speaking, this is Lightnin' on no more than good form, rising to very good indeed in "Walking Round in Circles", but the sonic effects lend the music a strangeness that some listeners may find attractive".

The final two are full-band tracks produced by drummer King Ivory Lee Semiens with Lightnin' playing electric, the band following his erratic timing as best as they can. While the material on here is classic Lightnin', the sound is dodgy throughout, the live tracks pulled from vinyl and distorting out in several spots.
