Manufacturer Description

Slim's style of Louisiana blues sounds just as fresh today as it did to the British blues rockers who co-opted it more than 30 years ago. This 16-track CD features Baby, Scratch My Back; Rainin' in My Heart; I'm a King Bee; Te Ni Nee Ni Nu; Tip On In, Part 1; Shake Your Hips , and more from the king of swamp blues.

Slim Harpo recorded really good rhythm and blues. He never got too fancy; he never forgot the importance of the groove. He died young in 1970, but his music reached the Rolling Stones (who covered his "I'm a King Bee"), the Kinks (who sang his "I Got Love If You Want It"), Van Morrison, and Them (whose first single was Harpo's "Don't Start Crying Now"). These songs and other greats--"Tip on In," "Baby, Scratch My Back"--are all included in this excellent collection of Harpo's greatest sides. --Robert Gordon
