If you like Slim Harpo, you will love this cd as it has all his Excello singles which include the originals of the cover versions recorded in the sixties by artistes such as The Rolling Stones, The Pretty Things, The Yardbirds and the Kinks. It is easy to understand why so many artistes recorded Slim's songs by listening to this album. He was way ahead of his time!

A must for Slim Harpo fans!

Slim Harpo is one of the true legends of the Blues.So many others have covered his songs but it is a pure joy to listen to the originals recorded by the man himself instead of the likes of The Rolling Stones etc. Not that the Stones did any bad copies. In fact, their renditions, and those of many others, brought him to my attention back in the days when you didn't hear Blues music from anyone other than through covers recorded by Caucasian bands, because the radio stations were so institutionally biased in what they would broadcast in order to control our tastes and opinions. It is hard to believe that used to happen....but it did.

Hard to believe that this music dates from so long ago - many of the tracks sound really fresh. Highly recommended.

So many artists have covered his stuff but there is nothing like the original, great writer.
Can't understand why he wasn't better known or more successful, maybe a victim of circumstance.
