Memphis Slim has made more records than any other pianist in blues
history. His rich vocals and solid piano work have been exhibited in
settings including blues, R&B, rock, even country & western -
solo or in bands both large and small. Slim's recordings for the
United label are outstanding, not only among Slim's own proliferation
of material, but among the whole field of urban band blues. And they
marked a special occasion: the introduction to Chicago blues of Matt
"Guitar" Murphy. The guitar brought a change in the sound of Memphis
Slim & His House Rockers that lasted until Slim disbanded the
group and moved to France. Murphy joined the Blues Brothers and
became a model for even more emerging modern blues guitarists. This
CD contains two Murphy instrumentals, three songs not available since
the 78s, and four previously unissued alternate takes. Still
available on cassette as Pearl 10.
