Rooster Blues

LP (Item 606404) Excello, Late 50s — Condition: New Copy
(reissue)
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 46

Gritty blues from the great Lightnin Slim – a set of tracks that has a romping, almost rocking groove right from the start – the kind of back/forth energy we might expect to hear more from Jimmy Reed at the time! The overall proceedings are definitely in a more rootsy mode, though – with stripped-down instrumentation that really gets at the core of the vocals and rhythms – not to mention some great harmonica parts too! Titles include "Lightnin's Troubles", "GI Slim", "My Starter Won't Work", "Rooster Blues", "Tom Cat Blues", "It's Mighty Crazy", and "I'm Leavin You Baby".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
