Memphis Slim - Memphis Slim USA

Product Code: CCD 79024
Availability: In Stock



After Memphis Slim and his colleagues had finished their first Candid album - a tribute to blues singing friend, living and dead - Memphis wanted to keep on recording. The session had turned out to be more stimulating that he'd anticipated, and while there was still tape left, he didn't want to lose the groove.

Rather than restrict Memphis (vocals and piano), Jazz Gillum (vocals and harmonica) and Arbe Stidham (vocals and guitar) to a pre-arranged programme with each number being repeated until all errors had been removed, it was suggested that Memphis free associate. After a few numbers, it was clear that a definitive pattern was developing - the odyssey of an American Negro blues singer. These are travelling blues, and at the suggestion of Memphis, it's called Memphis Slim USA.
