This quintessential CD contains 24 remastered studio tracks, consisting of a large selection of the sensational recordings Slim Harpo made for the legendary Excello label, which were produced by Jay Miller between 1957 and late 1960. Included here are Harpo’s most celebrated and enduring singles, such as the original versions of songs that went on to be covered by British bands of the Sixties. The Rolling Stones made “I’m a King Bee” famous, while The Yardbirds and The Kinks cut versions of “I Got Love if You Want It,” and Van Morrison’s Them recorded “Don’t Start Cryin’ Now.” This set offers listeners the opportunity to hear many of the finest tunes by one of the blues genre's most important yet unsung heroes.
