Lightnin' Slim played the real, low-down blues with no watering down or juicing up. It's so stripped down that on half of the tracks here there isn't even a bass guitar, just Lightnin', a harp player (usually Lazy Lester or Slim Harpo) and a drummer. This collection of unissued songs and alternate takes shows that everything he did was great. The notes are hip, funny, and informative. The only thing I didn't like about this CD is that it is Vol 1 and there is no Vol 2. If you like Lightnin' Slim you'll love this Cd; if you like blues but never heard of Lightnin' Slim, get this.

The Best of Excello Records and Dark Clouds Rollin': Excello Swamp Blues Classics are appropriate and impressive introductions to the label's lowdown swamp rhythms. Lazy Lester's I Hear You Knockin': The Excello Singles comes close to matching Slim Harpo for defining swamp blues with his own inimitable harp style, having recorded the definitive version of Miller's oft-covered "Sugar-Coated Love

His first solo release, for Excello Records, based in Nashville, Tennessee, was "I'm a King Bee", backed with "I Got Love If You Want It" in 1957. The other musicians on the recording were Gabriel "Guitar Gable" Perrodin (guitar), John "Fats" Perrodin (bass), and Clarence "Jockey" Etienne (drums). He recorded his 1968 album Tip On In in Nashville, using musicians Charles Hodges (organ), Mabon "Teenie" Hodges (guitar); Leroy Hodges (bass) and Howard Grimes (drums), who later became more widely known as the Hi Rhythm Section. Other notable covers of Slim Harpo songs include "I Got Love If You Want It" by the Kinks, "I'm the Face" by the Who (when they were still called the High Numbers), "I'm A King Bee" by the Rolling Stones, Muddy Waters, the Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd and the Doors, and "Don't Start Crying Now" by Them with.
