Slim Harpo recorded really good rhythm and blues. He never got too fancy; he never forgot the importance of the groove. He died young in 1970, but his music reached the Rolling Stones (who covered his "I'm a King Bee"), the Kinks (who sang his "I Got Love If You Want It"), Van Morrison, and Them (whose first single was Harpo's "Don't Start Crying Now"). These songs and other greats--"Tip on In," "Baby, Scratch My Back"--are all included in this excellent collection of Harpo's greatest sides. --Robert Gordon
Top Customer Reviews
However comparisons with the latter are as two exact opposites-Harpo was thoughly normal and had no drink problem.He kept the same wife for over 20 years and was no problem to promoters.Neither was he overtly ambitious-he rarely strayed from the South.
Slim Harpo was first covered in the 50s by Warren Smith on the Sun label but is more famous for the covers made by British artists.His own covers were usually known blues standards.
He proves that you don't have to screech your way through a song and is definitley more important than James Brown in my book
