Best Of Slim Harpo – The Original King Bee

LP (Item 588567) Excello/Rhino, Early 60s — Condition: Near Mint-
Heavy soulful blues from Slim! The album's a great collection of his excellent work for Excello – raw electric blues tinged with nice touches of Southern Soul production. Tracks include "Mohair Sam", "Shake Your Hips", "I'm A King Bee", "Baby, Scratch My Back", and "Tip On In".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(80s issue. Cover has light wear.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Whispering Smith

Over Easy
Excello, Early 70s. Very Good
Earthy blues from Whispering Smith, a singer with a really deep-voiced approach – a style of singing that comes from way down in the chest, and belts out with a ferocity that's a lot louder than a whisper!

Inner City, 1977. Near Mint-
Otis Blackwell takes back his songs – providing his own new versions of tunes that were recorded famously by a host of rock, pop, and R&B artists back in the 50s!

Howlin Wolf, Muddy Waters, & Bo Diddley

Super Super Blues Band
Checker, 1967. Very Good+
A group that definitely lives up to its name – given that the lineup features the Chess Records stalwarts Bo Diddley, Howlin Wolf, and Muddy Waters! The set's maybe a bit more in the mode of Wolf or Waters than some of Bo's own records – although there's a bit of that riffing spark of ... LP, Vinyl record album
