Sealed 1976 Stereo 10 Track Compilation. “Following Discs Showcasing The Styles Of Blues Greats Bukka White, Champion Jack Dupree, Big Joe Williams, And Others, Pianist Memphis Slim Received His Due On Volume Seven Of GNP Crescendo's Legacy Of The Blues Series. Born And Raised In Memphis, TN, Slim Didn't Record Until Moving To Chicago In 1940. The Music That Followed Over The Next 14 Years (Numerous Sides As A Leader And Accompanist Scattered Across Ten Labels) Helped Define Urban Blues, Giving A Rural Music Form A Big-City Polish. This Set Gathers Nine Slim-Led Small Combo Performances Recorded For Producer Clyde Otis. The Disc Opens With Slim Revisiting One Of His Signature Tunes, The Excellent "Everyday I Got The Blues." Originally Recorded In 1948 As "Nobody Loves Me," The Song Has Since Become A Virtual Blues Standard, Having Been Rendered By Blues (B.B. King), Rock (Fleetwood Mac), And Jazz (Sarah Vaughan) Artists Alike. The Material That Follows Ranges From Up-Tempo Numbers Like "Let's Get With It," "Sally Mae," And "Broadway Blues" To The Shuffle Blues Of "A Long Time Gone" And The Slow Swagger Of "Gambler's Blues." Throughout The Set, Slim Is Happy To Lend The Spotlight To His Sidemen, Working The 88s Behind Eddie Chamblee's Tenor Solo On "I Am The Blues" And Billy Butler's Guitar On "Ballin' The Jack." Even In These Situations However, The Pianist Is Dazzling And His Commentary Always Worth Paying Attention To.” – Nathan Bush, AMG
