LP COLLECTOR'S EDITION STRICTLY LIMITED TO 500 COPIES

This collector’s limited edition on LP vinyl contains 19 studio tracks, consisting of a large selection of the sensational recordings Slim Harpo made for the legendary Excello label, produced by Jay Miller between 1957 and late 1960. Featured here are plenty of slow, mid-tempo bluesy sometimes rocking R&B tunes, rounding off with a couple of harp-led instrumentals from Harpo’s debut LP Rainin' in My Heart (1961) – “Moody Blues” and “Snoopin’ Around.”

In addition, as bonus track, this collection also contains the catchy song “Something Inside Me,” recorded in New Orleans on June 27, 1961 for the Imperial label, and produced by Dave Bartholomew. This set offers listeners the opportunity to hear many of the fi nest tunes by one of the blues genre’s most important yet unsung heroes.

SLIM HARPO: vocals, guitar and harmonica, plus:

James Johnson, Gabriel “Guitar Gable” Perrodin (guitar),
Clinton “Fats” Perrodin, T.J. Kitchen (bass),
Katie Webster (piano), Sammy K. Brown (drums),
probably Lazy Lester (additional harmonica),
Willie “Tomcat” Parker or Lionel Torrence (tenor saxophone),
among others.

Recorded in Louisiana, between 1957 and 1961.
