Guitar Slim- I Got Sumpin For You
[ Hoodoo441 ]
Price: $12.00

The legendary Eddie “Guitar Slim” Jones was a passionate R&B singer and an absolutely brilliant guitar player whose 1950s sides still crackle with a ragged intensity over fifty years after they were recorded. Nearly all rhythm & blues artists hailing from Texas, Louisiana or Mississippi cite him as one of their principal influences. Slim's singing was as fiery as his guitar work, and his gospel-like passion was perfectly matched by the loose-limbed feel of his magnificent band, sometimes including Ray Charles on piano
This quintessential release contains 28 remastered tracks from Guitar Slim's most inspired years, gathering a variety of the great sides he recorded for the Specialty label and Atlantic's subsidiary, Atco Records, between 1953 and 1958 and  are all examples of Slim's distortion-ridden guitar tone that predated Jimi Hendrix and the great blues and rock lead guitar players of the 1960s.
